The “S Curve” – also known as “sigmoid curve” or “sigmoid function” is also a model used in physics, mathematics and other fields, but understanding how it works for performance growth as a CEO will reinforce the importance of our CEO Debrief.
The S Curve, when used in business and high performance and organizational learning environment, signals the different stages of development — learning, growth and decline.
The “S” in the curve maps out visually where the learning, growth and decline happens over time.
“The most challenging points in the curve are the so-called inflection points, where your growth stagnates. In the moment, you might feel like your competitors are overtaking you and everything might look hopeless. You might want to make some appealing but bad decisions that would potentially take your company under.
