The School for Social Innovation - Impact Hub Islington, will be having a session to go over the Scaling Smart course.
The course will go over the Repeatable Model® framework developed by Bain & Company to help founders and leaders ensure they are delivering their core product or service effectively during expansion. This should be particularly interesting for those of you who are already entrepreneurs or leaders within an organisation, and also for those who aspire to be!
It is a short course which should take roughly two and half hours to complete. We will form small groups upon arrival, and then regroup at different points during the evening to have larger, interactive discussions.
Anyone with an interest in taking the course is welcome to join!
"How can my company or organization create impact at scale? This is a question increasingly asked by forward-thinking leaders in the social sector. Yet, while there is growing buzz around the need to scale solutions, there are limited frameworks or practical roadmaps to help social enterprises get there. How do you identify your core strengths and build upon them strategically? How do you grow in diverse and hard-to-reach markets? How do you avoid racing forward in an unfocused, and ultimately self-defeating, way? How do you achieve “good scale” and steer clear of “bad scale”? Enter the “Repeatable Model®“. The Repeatable Models® framework has been developed by Bain & Company based on its experience working with high-performing companies across a range of industries and countries for decades. This experience has helped Bain identify what is required for companies to sustain their success over time. In this course, we’ll show you how to apply this framework to the social sector to scale your work strategically across villages, regions and countries. Drawing from a report co-produced by Acumen and Bain called “Growing Prosperity: Developing Repeatable Models® to Scale,” this course will present practical advice and case studies from the founders and leaders of social ventures like One Acre Fund and Juhudi Kilimo who have successfully implemented repeatable models. By the end of this 2 hour course, you’ll have completed a diagnostic tool for your own enterprise and developed a plan for how to continuously implement your core services as you expand. You’ll walk away with a deep appreciation of the link between simple strategy and sustainable growth."
