1. Sell first and ask questions later

Capture as many new customers as possible -- while making sure that you can actually deliver the promised products and services.

2. Don't worry about your business model

It doesn't have to be perfect at the outset, You can refine it as you go along.

3. Don't try too hard to innovate

You must understand the technological trends in your business, but your focus should be on the systems and solutions critical to your growing customer base, not on the strategic implications of future killer apps.

4. Organize like McDonald's

Standardized organizational structures, technologies, and business processes allow your people to hit the ground running in new markets.

5. Push decisions out to the front line.

6. Foster a can-do culture.

Action-oriented companies -- where people move on quickly from solutions that aren't working, communicate freely, and don't fear failure -- will do best during fast growth

7. Reward for success

To foster such a culture, reward people for their successes and for implementing new ideas.
