Scalability
By:Rick Boxx
December 7, 2015

We have hosted events for years and have grown adept at handling crowds of 300 or so. Recently, however, our model was severely tested when 700 attendees squeezed into a hotel ballroom to hear St. Louis Cardinals manager, Mike Matheny.

We discovered a few cracks in our model. We didnt factor in how much the space and configuration could impact the flow of traffic. The result was a delayed start to the event and an opportunity to take a fresh look at how to improve our process.

Proverbs 22:3 teaches, The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

If youre trying to build a scalable business model add a couple of zeroes to the number you currently serve and carefully consider what might go wrong.
