How to build a business in 2018 like you live in the Silicon Valley



If you’re planning on biting the bullet in 2018 and starting or accelerating your own business, there’s a few rules to stick by to accelerate your venture like a tech giant in the Silicon Valley. 
The Centre for Creative Leadership 2017 says you should be doing these 7 key things to survive and thrive in the new world of work. 
  1. Grow people fast and forward. 
  2. Build ecosystems to support each other not the individual. 
  3. Use analytics on what has worked in the past and what hasn’t. Use data before you decide on what’s next. 
  4. Design work for people who are time poor – small ‘snackable’ bites of work to do in collaborative pods increasing results and input from others. 
  5. Take a deep dive in some areas to become expert at – leave others alone. 
  6. Protect your people before they become someone else’s. 
  7. Provide great experiences before great explanations. 

So, are you ready to take the plunge and grow your business now?
