Business Diagnostics

The Business Diagnostic is an instrument based on South African best practice information and data obtained from South Africa and globally. It is suitable for use in small to medium sized companies.

 

The Business Diagnostic defines the essential business drivers that allows for an objective assessment of the status of a business and the setting of objectives and metrics for growth.

 

It is intended as an instrument of self-assessment and do-it-yourself for owners, directors and their senior management teams.

Strategic and Business Planning

Strategy is important because the resources available to achieve these goals are usually limited. Strategy generally involves setting goals, determining actions to achieve the goals, and mobilizing resources to execute the actions. A strategy describes how the ends (goals) will be achieved by the means (resources).

Business Restructuring

Restructuring is the corporate management term for the act of reorganizing the legal, ownership, operational, or other structures of a company for the purpose of making it more profitable, or better organized for its present needs. Other reasons for restructuring include a change of ownership or ownership structure, de-merger, or a response to a crisis or major change in the business such as bankruptcy, re-positioning, or buyout.
