Are you ready to understand the problems your business is facing and know what to do to solve them? Then take our free diagnostic tests below….

We have five different tests that we would like you to take with each of them focuses on a key functional area of your business. These are focused on assessing your business in the areas of  STRATEGIC COMPETENCE, OPERATIONAL COMPETENCE, MARKETING COMPETENCE, RESOURCE MANAGEMENT COMPETENCE AND FINANCIAL AND PHYSICAL ASSETS.

All the tests have a series of questions which we would like you to answer by a rating of stars from 1 to 5. There are also yes/no type questions that are asked. To make the tests as simple as possible, we have not required text-type answers which require you to type answers except for the questions seeking to know your business and what you do. 

Once you finish with each test, your results will be sent to you within minutes to the email address that you provide. Of course, we do not want it to end there as we believe there are deeper actions that must be taken to address each of the problems that are identified in the test. Previously, we explained to you that the diagnostic process consisted of four stages of Diagnostics, Prognosis, Treatment and Practice.

Taking this test and receiving your results is only a part of the diagnostic process to allow you the business owner, have a general understanding of the state of your business. As part of our business advisory services, Astute will like you to allow us to help you address all these problems by engaging us to execute the rest of the stages through to practice to completely eliminate these problems in your business. If you are open to it, you can call on us.
