Growing pains or culture crisis? Four lessons to keep in mind when growing your business
Mark Zuckerberg said that growing businesses should “move fast and break things”.
This mindset during phases of organisational expansion often rewards innovation, risk taking, autonomous decision making, and favouring progress over process.

Unless carefully managed, company culture can often be the first casualty in business growth and lead to catastrophic cultural failure in the long term.
