“The 7 Essentials Scorecard provides an executive team with a key set of insights, which become the basis for an organization's strategy and framework, to sustain exponential growth.”

Is there a structured approach to a business development growth strategy? This is a question that drew David Thomson to create the 7 EssentialsSM Workshop and 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard in order to provide a structured approach to creating a business development and growth strategy.
There are seven elemental management practices common to exceptional growth within Blueprint Companies, independent of industry. The 7 EssentialsSM elements are the "Blueprint" that management teams, or business development leaders, utilize to achieve exponential revenue growth. In fact, over 90% of Blueprint Companies utilize five or more of the practices identified in the 7 EssentialsSM Workshop. Employing these essential elements will unlock your company's exponential growth potential. Think of these elements as the "seven habits of exceptional growth companies."
This 7 EssentialsSM Workshop is designed to help your company or business unit benchmark how it is currently performing against each of the functions I have identified as key to propelling your organization toward exponential growth — and to create an actionable growth plan to close this gap. The main end-product of the 7 EssentialsSM Workshop will be to develop a 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard and a 7 EssentialsSM Roadmap that will transform your company's growth strategy by benchmarking growth strategies and action plans against each of these key elements. This customized 7 EssentialsSM Roadmap will become your plan to turn these insights into the actions required to achieve exponential growth!
The 7 EssentialsSM Workshop is for standalone public or private companies or business units that want to achieve exponential revenue growth with returns. This one-day workshop is both action oriented and inspirational, with lots of problem solving and discussion. If the workshop is for a small group of 5 or so companies, then typically the CEO and COO/CFO or President of each of these divisions should participate.
