The Kasvuryhmä team uses certain concepts and tools to support the journey of growth leaders. The method used by Kasvuryhmä is based on a common language that allows the growth leaders of different sized companies at different stages to discuss growth possibilities.
The method has been designed to facilitate and systematise the setting as well as monitoring of growth goals. At Kasvuryhmä, we have more than 200 different types of companies - To effectively exchange experiences, our members benefit from a common language to talk about growth and strategy - that is our method for growth and renewal.
The method is based on a couple of principles - please consider how the key elements are present in your company at the moment. Have we jointly defined the elements for us and how are we applying them in everyday life?
Passion alone is not enough - to succeed in growth and innovation - you also need to recognize and seize the sources for growth.
Third principle lies in the fact that growth is not something separate from everyday life. To accelerate growth, leaders need to break the courageous goal down into clear milestones for all individuals in the organisation and create a management system and culture that supports the implementation of the growth strategy.
In the Kasvuryhmä context we focus on your most important milestones - where do you need to succeed in to make the courageous goal reality? These milestones should also represent the concrete topics and themes we will discuss in this group. We also evaluate the progress towards achieving these with simple traffic lights every time we meet.
Bigger milestones consist of smaller ideas, thoughts and series of actions. In every meeting we dedicate time to reflect what each and everyone of us learned - what did you discover - what is your key takeaway… Based on your key takeaway we also expect that you set a concrete next action to expedite your company’s growth journey.
In the Kasvuryhmä workspace, each member defines relevant concepts on their company’s growth cards according to the Kasvuryhmä method. Growth cards express the growth strategy of the member company by using Kasvuryhmä’s common language. Growth cards are used to spar with each other on our journey to growth. If they so wish, members can also utilise growth cards, for example, in their management team or board, or in communicating their growth strategy to personnel.
"Growth and innovation depend on us."
