Strategic Audit

Pressure test your current strategy

An unbiased and in-depth review of your shop’s strategy. Strategic audits identify risks and ensure your strategy matches your goals. We then perform a thorough evaluation to ensure your strategy is implementable with your current resources.

The audit answers questions like:

  • How sound is our current strategy?
  • Are our goals realistic?
  • Do the company’s goals align with the owner’s goals?
  • Where is the risk in our strategy?
  • Do we have or can we acquire the resources needed to implement our strategy?
