lily-pad
 n.— «At Nordson, Mr. Madar has been using what he terms a “lily pad to lily pad” growth strategy, jumping from one new market to another nearby one “rather than leap across the pond or into an entirely different pond.”» —“Nordson Is Poised to Compete in the ’90s” by Ralph E. Winter in Westlake, Ohio Wall Street Journal Nov. 29, 1988. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
