A Tool to Quickly Assess Your Business

AssessmentI am on the team of PointForward and we have developed the Business Health Assessment.  It is a powerful tool created through more than 15 years of experience working with companies such as Google, Verizon, AOL, Associated Content, Mapquest, Parexel and many others.

The tool allows you to quickly corral the intelligence of your workforce and to pinpoint what is working and what needs fixing across four areas critical to any company’s success.

A company who recently used this tool said:

“We used PointForward’s Business Health Assessment to benchmark our organization.  The intelligence provided by PointForward was insightful and actionable, and is being used to help us improve our organization for long term success.” – David Capece, Founder & CEO Sparxoo

The process is simple: We’ll create a custom survey link for you that you can send your employees.  The survey takes 10 minutes or less, and you will see results coming in real-time.  (Yes — I said real time.  Can you imagine doing it at a big meeting of your company?)

We have broken it down into 4 quadrants:

Targeting: Does the company have a strong and agreed upon business purpose and strategy that provides clarity of direction at every level?

Talking: Do team members effectively communicate with each other, to customers and to partners?

Teaming: Do we build cohesive and functional teams who work effectively together in reaching business objectives?

Timing: Do we have a clear plan of action, methods to measure success and flexibility to make changes as needed?

The tool efficiently harnesses the wisdom of your workforce in real-time so you can:

  1. Understand your strengths to better leverage them as you grow.
  2. Identify trouble spots in the organization that, if not resolved, can impede future growth.
  3. Understand variances in perception by subgroups (e.g., engineering, sales, finance, senior leaders, etc.) to build continuity across the organization.

Overall, the intelligence gained from the survey will enable your company to effectively plan for and measure success.  If you are a coach or consultant, you can use the tool to take that all important snapshot.  Once completed, you can then analyze the results and work with your client to create a plan of action.
