Just because you know things aren’t working as they should, doesn’t mean you know why. Many business leaders need to look outside their four walls to get fresh eyes and an objective view of the situation. In some cases, you may already know what the problem is, but not everyone agrees. Or you know what you want to do and you simply need guidance before jumping in. More often it pays to slow down—just a little—in order achieve your goals in the least amount of time, with the least expense and with the lowest risk.
BMGI is often called upon to conduct assessments that help clients either identify or confirm a problem or opportunity. Sometimes these assessments are comprehensive, lasting many weeks. Other times they’re highly focused and take just a few days. Long or short, each assessment provides some kind of evaluation of the current situation and the gaps, obstacles and risks that stand in the way of reaching the desired future state.
Because each organization is unique, most of our clients require an assessment that includes elements based on their specific objectives. In general, though, our assessments can be best viewed through the following lenses:
Problem Solving Capability (Improvement or Innovation)
- Openness to change
- Likely points of resistance
- Speed that can be tolerated
- Best approach
Opportunities for Improvement
- Quick hits
- Greatest leverage points
- Biggest customer impact
- Key areas of focus
- Balancing long- and short term
- Greatest return to investment ratio
- Strategic thinking
- Strategic planning
- Ability to execute
- Improvement and innovation portfolios
At BMGI, we work directly with you to tailor an assessment to meet your needs.
