Imagine paying for consulting and implementing the strategies only to realise that valuable time and resources could have been better used in more effective ways in your business. Our Strategic Growth Audit service is a pre-phase to any strategy work we take on. Through research and experience we know that one-size does not fit all. We follow a tailored holistic approach that ensures business goals and objectives are understood, embodied and delivered. The audit is designed to minimise losses, identify pain points and growth gaps, define objectives, set priorities and outline the scope of strategy consulting work before you invest in full-on strategy consulting.
Diagnose the effectiveness of your current strategic plan
Why Carry Out a Growth Audit?
Unlock a good understanding of how your current business results came about and identify the best opportunities for growth and transformation.
Here are the different stages of the process:
A tailored approach to assessing and understanding your circumstances and goals
Because each of our clients is unique, we do not use a cookie-cutter approach. We take into account the size of your company, business units, goals and objectives, key stakeholders and geographical location. This helps us tailor our approach to the most effective Strategic Growth Audit that will capture relevant data and insights necessary for effective strategy design.
Research and compilation of data
Next, using tools and techniques we have used over the years with excellent results, we conduct in-depth research within the business to understand your operations, systems and processes as well as leadership, employee engagement, company culture, stakeholder relationships and everything in between. We compile this data and information for analysis at the next step.
Data analysis for informed decision-making
Once we have compiled the data from the research stage, we analyse it taking into account the initial consultation and assessment, business objectives, the economic climate, and market trends and shifts. We tap into our extensive experience in consulting plus in-house frameworks that give a clear understanding of circumstances to show clear ways forward.
4. EXECUTIVE DEBRIEF
Insights, learnings and recommendations
We bring your key decision-makers to the table for an executive debrief of our insights and learnings, and recommendations for next steps. It’s crucial that all attend for visioning and buy-in for next steps.
Bridge to the next step
The reason for carrying out an audit is to diagnose challenges and highlight opportunities for growth. Often, following an audit, the next step is our CRYSTALLIZE™ Strategy service where we help your executive team clearly design practical strategies for the next level of growth for your business.
