Three Horizons of Growth Worksheet

In business, we often find ourselves caught up in the now. There are always fires to fight, this month’s or quarter’s goals to hit, and today’s to do list. It can be awfully difficult to take a step back and think about 5-10 years from now, or even 3-5 years from now. Yet, if you want to build an enduring business that will pass the test of time and grow beyond your wildest dreams, you have to have an eye on the future, and McKinsey’s Three Horizon of Growth framework can help.

To get you going on the Three Horizons of Growth, download the free and editable Three Horizons of Growth PowerPoint Worksheet.
