“In my two decades with Sportsafe, we never had a year in which we didn’t grow, and we never had a year in which we didn’t make a profit. But eventually, that growth got to be too much. We were just growing too quickly, and we couldn’t cope with it. We needed to change.
Our senior management team created a One Page Plan outlining the direction and big priorities of Sportsafe in a single, succinct document. Now every employee — whether they were a manager, an engineer, an accountant or a secretary — could see how their individual roles and tasks fit into the company’s long-term plan. It was incredible. We had 110 people pulling in the same direction. Each employee was able to see how their tasks for the day would advance the priorities in our One Page Plan. They said they felt like their work mattered — because it did!
It wasn’t until our last three years before I sold the company where we really started to take-off. And I don’t think that would have been possible without Align”
