Business Assessment

The Next Level Plus Organization Assessment is a diagnostic checkup and assessment of your organization that is designed to provide you with a measureable perspective of your past, present, and future with which to measure your company’s results, challenges, and opportunities.  The assessment will highlight areas of the organization that need greater and immediate attention, and provide the foundation for developing solid strategies. We typically spend a few days to a few weeks conducting the assessment.  


At the conclusion of the assessment a time is scheduled to evaluate the results and findings of the assessment with you and your team.

Business Evaluation

The Next Level Plus Evaluation Process is perhaps the most important step of the process.  This is when we review the findings of the assessment with you and your team to determine what are the primary and initial steps that the organization needs to take to get to the next level.  The discussion will bring to light the importance of striking a balance between strategic and tactical goals and a balance between the core functions of Finance, Marketing, Sales, Operations, and People.  The conclusions drawn from the evaluation process will become the foundation for your customized Strategic Plan. 

Strategic Planning

After evaluation of the assessment is complete, we begin to work on the Next Level Plus Strategic Planning Process.  It is during the planning process that we spend the necessary time to identify and research solutions to the right problem(s) and identify and develop plans to eliminate hindrances that may interfere with your organization seizing the identified opportunities for growth in your organization. The strategic planning process is crucial in bridging the gap between your company’s current position and the desired future position.  Typically the strategic planning process will include one or more of the following:  Project Management, Process Management, and Consulting.

Change Management

It is widely recognized that every new level of organizational advancement and every system or process requires a degree of staff and team adjustment that must be managed and monitored from the beginning of the process.   With this in mind the Next Level Plus Change Management Process instills in all of their processes the importance of clarity of vision, effective communication, team and coalition building and persistence throughout the entire process.  It is through the persistent application of the change management process that we assist management in getting past all the hurdles and obstacles that may interfere with the organization getting to the point of forgetting ‘the way it used to be.  Until you get to that point you have to continue to manage the change and monitor the process.

  • Have an obligation to the company first, and the owner or CEO comes second.

Role of Advisory Team Members
