Strategic Audit

Pressure test your strategy

A strategic audit will help ensure your strategy matches your goals and that it’s implementable with your current resources. It also tries to identify the riskiest assumptions so you can plan around them.

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?
