Business Sustainability Benchmark

Every practice is different, you have your unique set of skills, knowledge and experience, as well as your specific clients and their projects.

But every practice has to address seven distinct and fundamental business functions that must be developed and managed.

This simple Health Check allows you to benchmark your current status (Weak to Strong) on these business functions using your self-assessment of several key statements.

It will calculate your average score for each business function, then on completion, aggregate those averages into an overall score (NB: if you leave any statement as the default ‘0’ it will reduce your score).

We will always respect your privacy and this self-assessment will not be visible to anyone else, so to be of value to you, consider being as honest with yourself as possible.

There are no wrong answers.
