They cannot leave anything to chance and have to carefully construct and implement thought-out plans to generate maximum value for themselves and eventually to their customers and other stakeholders. Having a strategy in place to accelerate growth and scale the organization to the next level can pose as a challenge to Small and Medium Businesses.
