When was the last time you did a complete Gap Analysis?
This may seem to be self promotional, but everyone here has the ability to perform Gap Analysis without outside assistance.
All companies have issues; areas where they don’t perform well, have problems that constantly re-occur and a sense that things just aren’t working well.
Do you have a plan in place to determine how well you are succeeding against your business plan, industry or governmental standards or legal standards?
If so, do you run this program at least once a year, and if significant problems are highlighted, run it again a few months after corrections have been made?
Do you run the program for the entire universe of your company or just where you think the problem lies?
Is your Gap Analysis document based on a binary (Yes, we do it; No, we don’t) scenario?
I think each area can be a discussion point and a cross pollination of what you’ve seen work and what hasn’t.
