Why you need to change in order to grow your firm…

You need to change because the dynamics of the IT business and how you manage outcomes is directly related to the number of people you have working for your company, and in how you manage work through them and your management team. It is further complicated by the fast-paced change of your competitors, the technology you use, and the changing needs of your clients.

Quite simply, if you don’t change, you will get stuck. Or worse, you will go backwards.

Backed by extensive research, Twenty Mile March fully understands each of the IT business growth stages, why IT firms fail to thrive, and what to do about it. Acting on this research, we have developed a set of principles known by our valued clients as the 5iAdapt principles which, when implemented, allows you to adapt to the growth changes as necessary. This, in turn, will take your business to that next level, whether it be located in Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney.


As your IT firm grows, it moves through different growth stages. As you transition through each stage, you, your team, and your company will need to change in order to successfully reach the next level of development.
