What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Everything starts with the Strategic Assessment.

Conducting a Strategic Assessment involves in-person or online virtual personal interviews with a representative number of management and strategically selected key staff employees.

Most often employees will be more direct, relaxed and candid with a “neutral” consultant than with company management on issues of major importance.  This means you will receive insight into problems and opportunities that will not normally arise through the normal communication channels.  That's an essential step that really gets top management focused!

During the personal interviews there will be a major focus on determining the company’s strengths and weaknesses as well as conduct basic research, explore the management and planning systems that are in place along with other needs that are identified during the interviews. 

A formal questionnaire will be used for all interviews and each person will be asked to quantify many of their verbal answers on a rating scale of 1 to 100 with 1 being the lowest and 100 being the highest rating.  They will be instructed to establish their ratings in the context of what they had experienced in school with respect to an “A-B-C” grading structure.

A = 90 to 100, B = 80 to 89, C = 70 to 79, D = 60 to 69 and F = 59 and below

Additionally, they will be asked to elaborate in their own words on whatever comes to mind during their thinking process.  Some of the questions will clearly inspire the interviewees to speak their mind.  Other questions will cause them to think deeply about the company today and where it is going in the future.

To encourage everyone to be very open, honest and candid with their comments and ratings, it is made clear their names will not be divulged in any way.

The strategic assessment always accomplishes four very important considerations:

1. Validates the strengths and weaknesses of your company.

2. Introduces you to new, leading edge and more effective "Best Business Practices”.

3. Provides comparisons to peer group companies.

4. Gets your key employees actively engaged to generate buy-in and commitment.

Whatever happens in the process, the results are always very positive.
