The Business Assessment
The Business Assessment is a cost effective process, designed specifically for small businesses to:
We do this through a process that identifies opportunity gaps in an organization. We evaluate an organization through a disciplined process of investigation using in-person meetings, surveys, online tool sets and data analysis. The standardized process reveals underlying barriers that are preventing an organization from reaching its goals. We evaluate employees, management team, business plan, marketing initiatives, customers, competition, organizational culture, marketplace competition and more.
“The growth and structure assessment has helped my company by creating a stronger foundation for growth. We are much better prepared for succession of the business to our new management team… we are a much more professional company today as a result of this process.” said Gary Kopp, President of Roofco Ontario Inc.
Our process is based on a standardized model that utilizes team and individual confidential interviews and a broad based marketing/business assessment. This is coupled with the use of online assessment tools that help define skills & abilities, and management roles & responsibilities. We provide ongoing guidance and recommendations throughout the process, a comprehensive set of recommendations and an implementation plan through a full written report upon completion.
“The time line was more extended than I had hoped but the process was more thorough than I had expected as well. I believe that the net result is that our day to day operations and overall business management improved during the process and I believe will continue to improve as we go forward.” he went on to say.
We work with your company to customize the process and develop a unique set of solutions.
