Growing Your Business Through Geographic Expansion

Growth Strategy: Geographic Expansion
Industry: Professional Services

Join host Aldonna Ambler on The Growth Strategist for a candid discussion on Growing Your Business Through Geographic Expansion. During this program, learn what some successful Fortune 500 corporations know about geographic expansion that leaders of mid-market companies need to learn about the journey to $1 billion/year. Aldonna addresses eight major areas of decision making involved in geographic expansion, including the criteria and logic behind which functions should be centralized vs. decentralized, how geographic locations are selected, whether a new facility should be lead by an existing employee or a pathfinder from the area, whether the new location should be owned by a franchisee or the corporation, if the new facility should be a result of an acquisition or organic growth, which type of financing should be involved, projections and return on investment in field based operations, and how to minimize over dependence on the lead person in the new facility.
