ScaleUp Radio

Dec 19, 2022

On this week’s episode of ScaleUp Radio we have another valuable presentation, centred around Critical Numbers.


When we say Critical Numbers, we’re not just referring to the financial side of the business, critical numbers are used throughout the framework of your company; from accountability through to rhythms.


With this presentation we’re going to explain just what Critical Numbers are; the importance of them to the scale up journey of your business, the common mistake most people make - and what the effect of ignoring them, or neglecting them, could mean.


We’ll also help you define your own Critical Numbers, giving you advice about fitting them into your Business Rhythms.


As with all of the ScaleUp Radio presentations, I refer to tools and techniques. If you’d like a copy of them, there is a link in the show notes.


Following the presentation, there is also a panel discussion of business owners talking about Critical Numbers, and the challenges they’ve faced using them within their business - and how they dealt with those challenges.


You might think that this is a little dry as a subject - but Critical Numbers are important when it comes to your scale up journey.
