Earlier this week, I had a chance to speak at one of Silicon Valley’s larger startup events, LAUNCH Scale.
Start ups can fail for many reasons. Lack of funding. Insufficient market opportunity. Poor product fit. But the most tragic source of failure occurs when a company survives all these challenges only to implode due to entirely internal reasons like scaling their operations and technology.
My speech focused on the most tragic, least talked about and all-too common source of implosions: scaling culture.
