Greiner Five Phases of growth

1. The Five(six) Phases of growth is a measure of influence of age and size on the organizational structure. The cycle may not necessarily be followed step wise as suggested.
2. Reading the Greiner Curve and interpreting it with strategic relatedness, gives further and a somewhat diagnostic insight into the Administrative Format of a business. The analysis provides clues to where the organisation is, whether the organisations objective and strategy are in consonance with the design, if there is a possibility for restructuring and if yes what is the scope and expanse of such engineering.
3. I also evaluate the model as a lead indicator of probable Leadership needs as opposed to management style alone.

Greiner's Growth Curve is accurate

This model is amazingly accurate in terms of growth stages and the change drivers that trigger decisions for companies and organizations, particularly since it was developed in the early 1970's. My experience is that organizations encounter thresholds during growth that require changes in management models to successfully pass through, like a shift from "family-managed" to "professionally-managed". Of interest to me is how to retain the drive and creativity of Start-ups as a company grows. I've seen this happen in larger companies and attribute most of it to enlightened leadership that breaks down silos and encourages certain amounts of risk-taking.
