Scaling Up

Verne Harnish’s Scaling Up framework is successfully used by 40,000 businesses globally and includes the famous Rockefeller Habits Checklist and One Page Strategic Plan.

The framework is based on the Four Decisions that companies must get right to grow and succeed.


Your Business is your people. Is your team ready for the changes growth will bring?


Strategy is the most powerful driver of growth. Do you know where your company is going.


Execution drives profits and time. Is your team ready to do things differently to achieve your goals?


Growth sucks cash. What are your cash conversion cycles, and do you have the dollars to grow?

Leigh is New Zealand’s only Senior Gazelles International Business Consultant and is specifically trained to help you align these four areas so that you and your leadership team can get focused, get working and grow.

The Outthinker process has been developed by a team of ex-McKinsey consultants and honed in practice over 10 years. Focusing on the strategic foundations of business, the methodology is proven to accelerate growth rates by 100%-120%.

Outthinker has been applied to over 300 companies globally including Lockheed Martin, Microsoft and Johnson & Johnson. It is becoming recognised as the leading framework to achieve company-wide strategic clarity and disruptive strategy.
