Symptoms indicating that you really don't know what is going wrong
You feel that you have the wrong team
The work is done by people and if something goes wrong, you would suspect it's their fault first of all. This may be true, but most often it is just a symptom. Dismissals often do not solve the problem, they only dispirit the team.
Everyone is doing their best, but the company is not growing
Your team works well together and everyone shares the desire for performance and higher financial results, but the business is not growing. When you once again think you have definitely found the problem and have started to act, the business system thinks differently, and the business development is postponed. As a result, instead of growth and scaling, you are wasting resources on the problem search.
Business system is too slow
The company is very slow to react and implement solutions, it becomes difficult to control. It seems like you take the right decisions and you do business in pace with the market, but there's a big time gap between the project launch and its implementation. You are sure you can do it faster.
If nothing changes
Even experienced managers are unable to assess the status independently and find bottlenecks in the company. This can lead to the trap of "obvious solutions" when it seems clear where the problem is, but after the measures have been taken the business system crashes again and again. You will fire good employees, change the company pace and, what is worse, you will lose the time that will delay the business growth and cast a shadow on your credibility.
