How Well Do We Align, Today?
Time is a precious commodity for all of us, and we respect that.
This brief questionnaire helps us gauge how closely our approaches align for tackling your business challenges.
Each question has three potential answers, each reflecting a different state of mind.
1. Vision & Goals:
Which ones of these align best with the top three goals you hope to achieve in the next year?
“We aim to increase our revenue by 20%, launch two new products, and expand our market presence in the European region…”
“We just want to keep things as they are and maintain our current client base…”
“We’re thinking of maybe launching a new product and perhaps exploring new markets, but we’re not entirely sure yet.”
2. Openness to Feedback:
On a scale of 1-10, how open are you to receiving direct and potentially challenging feedback?
“3. I prefer to stick to what I know and believe in. Too much feedback can be confusing.”
“6. I’m open to feedback, but I need time to process and decide if I’ll act on it.”
“I’d say 9… I believe feedback, even if it’s tough to hear, is crucial for growth and improvement.”
3. Past Consultancy Experience:
Have you worked with a consulting firm before? If so, what was the most valuable lesson you learned from that experience?
“We worked with a consultancy, and it was okay. Some advice was useful, but some didn’t resonate with our vision.”
“Yes, but we didn’t find it useful. We felt they didn’t understand our business.”
“Yes, we learned the importance of open communication and setting clear expectations from the start.”
4. Challenges & Roadblocks:
Can you describe a recent challenge in your business where you felt stuck or unsure about the next steps?
“We faced challenges in scaling our operations to meet increased demand. We weren’t sure how to optimize our processes without compromising quality.”
“We don’t really face challenges; everything has been smooth.”
“We’ve had some minor hiccups with supply chain delays, but we usually just wait it out.”
5. Collaboration & Partnership:
How do you envision our collaboration? What does a successful partnership look like to you?
“You provide us with a list of recommendations, and we’ll decide which ones to implement. We prefer minimal interaction.”
“A successful partnership involves open dialogue, mutual respect, and working together towards shared goals. I envision regular check-ins and a collaborative approach to problem-solving.”
“We’d like some guidance and advice, but we’ll take the lead on most decisions. Occasional meetings would be good.”
