Back in 1972, Larry Greiner [observed](https://hbr.org/1998/05/evolution-and-revolution-as-organizations-grow) that most companies grow through 5 fundamental phases. Each of them begins with a crisis point leading to a revolution, which itself marks the beginning of the following phase, with another set of problems to solve. 🔁It’s amazing to see Greiner’s theory stand the test of time—and how it perfectly applies to both growing startups and established companies.
