Growing pains: Operational solutions for each stage of growth

Audience growth, revenue growth and team growth are every news organization’s dream. But that growth can be painful if internal operations aren’t keeping pace with progress, which can lead to inefficiencies, redundancies, disorder, overwork and burnout. INN and LION Publishers will lay out common operational pain points that emerge at each growth stage based on INN’s Index of industry-wide data and LION’s Sustainability Audit. Together with participants, we will co-create practical, applicable solutions for healthy growth.

Session audience and takeaways:

  • This session is for those who are interested in better understanding the stages of organizational growth and for those who want to learn how to grow in a sustainable way
  • Some takeaways include a framework for articulating the stages of growth and how to successfully manage them and a co-created resource that articulates solutions to common operational problems at each of those stages of growth
