Growth Phases

   

Definition: Growth Phases is an organizational transformation model by Greiner ('72) that describes 5 (6) typical phases of organizational development and growth:
1. Growth through creativity. Ending by a leadership crisis.
2. Growth through direction. Ending by an autonomy crisis.
3. Growth through delegation. Ending by a control crisis.
4. Growth through coordination and monitoring. Ending by a red tape crisis.
5. Growth through collaboration. Ending by an internal growth crisis.
Added later:
6. Growth through extra-organizational solutions (mergers, holdings, networks of organizations)
