Most business ideas start small and grow as demand occurs. However, you can also unlock the potential of your idea by scaling it. When an idea is enlarged, it often exposes part of the idea that may affect you in ways unimaginable under traditional planning.
As an example, imagine if you were baking two peach pies for a family reunion, but your recipe only provides the instructions for baking just one pie. There’s an easy solution; You simply double the recipe ingredients and go to the grocery store to pick them up, just as you would for only one pie. However, if you were to make enough pies to serve fifty thousand people at a convention, it is not simply a matter of multiplying the recipe. The larger-scale process might involve buying the peaches on the commodity market, hiring a trucking firm to deliver them, and renting huge ovens, chairs, and tents for the guests. You get the message.
When you scale your idea to enormous proportions, issues come up that were never part of the original idea. These issues may very well make the difference between you and your other competitors on the market.
