Take the poll: Will your business grow in 2011?

We’ve launched a poll on the Washington Technology website asking people to predict what their company’s growth rate will be in 2011.

Early returns indicate that less than 5 percent is the leading answer, with 30 percent picking growth rates up to 5 percent and another 30 percent picking no growth at all.

Fifteen percent so far are optimistic, picking growth of more than 10 percent.

Interestingly, no one is predicting that their business will shrink.

The poll, though unscientific, is a good indicator of the mood of the market, but we need more people to take the poll to give us the best possible data.

You can only take the poll once, so make it count.

Click here for the poll.

The Engineering and Architectural business is very weak. The design operation must commence before the building takes place. I expect very little to zero growth during the next 12 months.
