Growth Acceleration Framework

A blueprint for scaling Go-to-Market: Insight Partners’ SaaS Growth Acceleration Framework

A significant challenge facing many CEOs and founders is that there really isn’t a documented blueprint for success. They know all of the necessary parts (product, sales, marketing, customer success, HR, finance, IT, etc), and they have a vision of what their company will become, but without that step-by-step guide, their dream may not be nearly as successful as their vision. Without prior experience or guidance, their company might not have a stable foundation or the right supporting structure to build on. And it’s not just an early stage startup concern when a company is first launched — this same challenge surfaces over and over throughout the lifecycle of a company as they launch new products, enter new segments, or expand into new markets.

Introducing the SaaS Growth Acceleration Framework

Over the past 25+ years, Insight Partners has been helping our portfolio companies successfully grow and expand. We codified our knowledge and built the SaaS Growth Acceleration Framework, which provides that blueprint for success. This framework was recently presented at Insight’s DRIVE event for our portfolio go-to-market leaders by Pablo Dominguez, who leads the advisory function for Insight.

“Alignment across go-to-market is the key to building a thriving business. We are excited to release our SaaS Growth Acceleration Framework, incorporating execution elements across product, technology, marketing, sales, and customer success. If any element of the framework is unstable, it impacts all of the other elements. So by evaluating and using our best practices, workshops, and engagements across the framework, you can ensure that your business is stable, secure, and ready to meet your revenue and profitability objectives.”

The response to this framework presentation was so overwhelming that we’ve decided to share it publicly with all founders and GTM leaders. You can access the most up-to-date, interactive version here.
