Ashgrove’s review begins with asking you how you currently see the state of your business. This is followed by some structured easy questions which will result in an easy to read ‘situation report’. This will guide further examination of the business. Particular areas that are explored are Strategy, Marketing (especially eMarketing), Sales, Services and Products, Finance, People and Operations.
All this will indicate areas which will benefit from further work and will improve, often significantly, growth, profitability and efficiency. You will be completely involved in this process and will therefore understand both the processes and the issues as they arise. The output from the review is usually an Action List focussing on the items most important to you first.
- Identify new opportunities and routes to increase growth
- Understand which efficiencies will improve profitability
- Focus on appropriate deadlines
- Obtain an objective view of the company’s situation and progress
