For wide-ranging reviews of business areas, Diagnostics & Solution Identification can be done separately or together.
It is important to set targets in advance.
It saves a lot of time if some specific data can be measured and analysed in advance.
Depending on the business area, Diagnostics & Solution Identification together could take a team only 3-5 days.
The team would include you and some of your key staff, plus an external facilitator.
Other key stakeholders can be involved through attending briefings by the team during and after the event.
Because these events normally define the current state and propose a number of improvements that can step up performance, they are frequently known as Baselines. As such they are also a form of High Impact Event – please refer to Implementationto see how they can be used in conjunction with other High Impact Events.
Once solutions have been identified, they can be implemented.
