Rapid growth through acquisition



AXON is a rapidly expanding mid-sized company that sells products and services to energy companies for drilling and managing oil wells. In the past two years the company has seen its revenue increase by 614% and expanded its global footprint to encompass 34 facilities in 8 countries worldwide. The company has also acquired numerous companies in the last couple of years, adding to its burgeoning portfolio of products and services.

But rapid growth and company acquisition comes with a set of challenges and one of the ways that AXON has responded is by launching a performance excellence initiative. In this Process Perspectives podcast, Gary Stratulate, CEO of AXON, describes the challenges of rapid growth, the importance of organizational culture and where his company is going next.
