What are the scaling diagnostics?

Scaling Diagnostics are a series of assessments that provide insights into your business's ability to scale.

These diagnostics help identify both known and unknown obstacles and gaps in your business, allowing you to focus your resources on areas that are most helpful for scaling.

Once you purchase a diagnostic, you will receive a custom link to a digital assessment. After completing the assessment, you will receive a detailed report that breaks down your strengths and weaknesses.

The report also provides definitions, context, and practical advice on how to improve your business in specific areas. If you score well, you will receive guidance on how to push your business to be in the top 3%. If you don't score well, that's okay, it will identify the areas you need to improve first.

No matter where you are in your business's scaling cycle, these diagnostics will show you what to do next.

Purpose Diagnostic

Your business purpose is essentially the 'why' of your business. It needs to be more than merely 'to make profit'. Purchase this diagnostic to understand if your business has a Purpose which can be anchored in conjunction with Vision and Mission to be the north star; and whether they are all collectively enabling your scale.

Strategy Diagnostic

This diagnostic helps you identify process gaps, flaws and redundancies in your delicate business ecosystem and points out best approaches for improvement for scale.

Automation Diagnostic

The automation of business processes is imperative for a business to keep up with modern demands, improve ways of working and increase efficiency in all aspects of the business.

This diagnostic will help you identify all of these insights and more.

Leadership Diagnostic

Great leadership is required for a business to foster trust and loyalty, and to inspire its team to achieve goals and ultimately scaling ambition.

This diagnostic will help your business identify if your leadership is equipped to take you through the scaling journey.
