Step 1: Once you’ve received your full package we recommend you read through the example files. This will give you a great understanding of the type of questions and how the results are shown in the spreadsheets and graphs.

Step 2:

a) Go through the spreadsheet and answer as many of the questions you can. Skip the questions that don’t make sense, or do not apply to your situation.

b) Invite up to 10 team members for a 4 hour workshop. This is a perfect opportunity to go through the questionnaire and build awareness and buy-in from the stakeholders at the same time. You can use this time to also discuss the way forward and the priorities for the implementation projects.

Step 3: Initiate the necessary projects to start implementing the deliverables that came out of the Self Assessment process.

And of course – feel free to contact us for additional support and to answer any of your questions.
