Context is essential. Without context things become ad-hoc and we lose focus.

foundation 1   Laying proper foundations is not that simple

Although our primary focus is on making teams work, if the environment that the teams work in is immature or misaligned then this task becomes extremely difficult.


We therefor do a Business Fundamentals diagnostic to ensure that everything is in place. We look at –

  • Basic administration
  • Legal and statutory requirements
  • Marketing
  • Team
  • Processes
  • Structure
  • People Development
  • Strategy

We then look at actions steps that need to be taken if there are any gaps that need to be filled, and we scorecard the process and produce reports that map progress.

Below is an example of a scorecard.

  • 0 = no progress has been made
  • 5 = this is completed or up to date


The diagnostic is done on a regular basis to monitor progress.
