“Hitting chaos at 50 employees could mean several positive things. For one, it definitely means a company is growing, likely faster than planned. And as long as the growth doesn’t get too far out of hand, that’s a good problem to have.
Chaos is also a sign that your company’s executives are spending time building the product, penetrating the market, and satisfying customers. They’re probably not hung up on the structure of the company itself. But the chaos is also definitely a sign that it’s time to start paying attention to this gawky teenager of a company before it rebels and runs away.”
