Take the first step to sustainable growth by trying our SmartChecker and uncovering your Business Smarts!

 

This simple exercise will give you useful insights into your business and provides a great way to start the conversation between us – you will have the option to arrange a telephone discussion with us when you receive your summary report.

 

Please be as honest as you can in your answers.  The more honest you are, the more value you will get from it.  Your responses will be treated confidentially and used to support any work we may do with you on a one to one basis.

It should take about 10 minutes to complete.  If it is taking you longer, then you may be thinking too hard about your answers!!

You will receive a summary report with an overall assessment of your business based on 8 strategic drivers.  

This will include:

  • An assessment of the attractiveness of your market segment
  • An assessment of your competitive advantage – in terms of your offer and your cost positions
  • Ratings of your relative strengths in 8 core areas:

 

  • Strategy

  • Leadership

Without help from BizSmart I may not have done this exercise, which I think will be vital to my business growth.

The business advisor assigned to us has been a great facilitator to get our heads in order – just what we needed. It is now our busiest time of year, so we are looking forward to September when we can implement all the growth ambitions we have set for the next three years.
