Assessing growth metrics each quarter allows the company to adjust the approach as needed to meet the end goal established in the growth plan.

Benefits of Business Growth
What are the Benefits of Business Growth?
Attracting new customers
Attracting new customers in new markets or with new products and services. A large and diverse customer base also helps insulate your business against over-reliance on a single client.
Creating economies of scale
Operating in multiple markets or product areas also allows you to spread the cost of doing business across more markets or customers and lowers the cost of doing business on a per-customer basis.
You may get discounts for buying in bulk or reduce your marketing expenses by spreading the cost of promotion over larger sales.
Diversifying increases protection
Entering new markets or introducing new products and services means that if one part of your business is exposed to market changes, you can rely on other income streams.
Increasing your market influence
One of the important advantages of expanding a business is the influence increased size gives you in influencing market pricing.
