Revealed! This is where Leicester City would be without Jamie Vardy… it’s not pretty

first_img Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy Jamie Vardy broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record to become the first player in Premier League history to score in 11 consecutive games.In true fairytale style, the England international etched his name in the history books at the King Power Stadium, as Leicester City drew 1-1 with Manchester United, leaving supporters applauding his meteoric rise from non-league football.But while reports and headlines have centred upon the goals that he has scored, what may be of more interest – certainly to Claudio Ranieri – is how important his form in the final third has been for his club’s rise to the top of the table.Has he been as key, for example, as Harry Kane was to Tottenham Hotspur last season?talkSPORT has the answer, as we reveal the stats that show how crucial the 28-year-old has been for the Foxes (all stats correct up to 2 December 2015).– Vardy has scored 14 goals and earned the Foxes 14 points– Without him, Leicester City wouldn’t be challenging Manchester City for top spot, rather they would be level with Chelsea on 15 points in 14th place– Vardy, however, isn’t the only player that has been key to their shock rise in the Premier League, as team-mate Riyad Mahrez has earned nine points through his seven goals– Without Vardy and Mahrez’s contributions, Leicester would have just six points this season 1last_img read more

Looking To Grow Your Company Avoid These 3 Landmines

first_imgAs a venture capital firm based in Boston, we invest growth capital in expansion stage software companies. These companies are no longer early stage. They have products, revenues and customers. They have built a foundation for a repeatable business model and now need to scale the business and grow it as rapidly as possible to take advantage of their market opportunity.Therefore we deal not just with the strategic issues behind rapidly growing software companies, but also the organizational challenges that every company faces when they experience rapid growth. It is often the organizational issues that hamstring companies looking to grow at above market rates. Every year our portfolio companies are challenged with the same three organizational landmines that can derail the best of plans.There was an article this week I read that discusses the three landmines that founders/CEOs and their management teams need to consider as they prepare for company growth. The article from McKinsey Quarterly is titled “Preparing Your Organization For Growth“.In the article, the authors talk about these three areas that can derail your company growth strategy:Stifling organizational structuresUnscalable business processesUnprepared peopleThere is no need for me to go into detail since you can read the article via the above link, but I can say that most CEOs devote all or the majority of their time to the strategy aspect and not enough time to organizational challenges. Don’t make the same mistake… this is an article you should print out and put in your annual planning folder to share with your management team and review every year.When you are looking to build the next great software company and achieve a strategic exit or an IPO at some point in the future, you can’t afford to neglect the these three landmines. You may not recover.All the best!GAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
