As we do our best to predict the future years for DAXKO, we continue to have lofty aspirations. Among our expectations is the intent to triple the size of our company over the next five years.
As we march toward that milestone, one thing is for sure – we won’t be able to operate as we do today. The same was certainly true 5 years ago when we were a third the size we are today. With this future growth, we’ll need to implement new processes and systems that support the increased scale, strengthen our commitment to leadership and professional development to ensure the necessary talent bandwidth, consistently innovate in new and existing markets to maintain or create meaningful differentiation, and much more.
Turning up the heat on operational effectiveness is not new to us. We have a healthy dose of process, systems, documentation, and know-how in our business already. This mindset shift is simply a recognition that the target is always moving, and we need to have the willingness and discipline to make the necessary adjustments.
We’ll make this “shift to a high-performance mindset” while at the same time not turning our back on what got us here. That’s a focus on providing technology and services that contribute significantly to the success of our customers and providing team members with rewarding careers. This is the foundation of our company culture, which we believe is a fundamental and long-term competitive advantage for us. A vibrant culture with a focus on customers and team members first increases the chances of becoming a high-performance, execution-minded business.
Not only will our initiatives around execution, accountability, clarity, and focus drive increased growth and profitability, but it will also result in tangible benefits to those two groups of stakeholders. Our customers will gain from improved, innovative solutions to their greatest pains and opportunities, and our team members will improve their own skillset and be provided with challenging stretch opportunities.
We look forward to tackling this next step in our lifecycle.
