Auditing the Business for Resilience:Beyond Expectations “We know this side is safe.” Donkey in Shrek We are just too big to fail!
We did everything right. Why are we going out of business?
Failure is for the other guys, not us!
There are several business maturity models in existence. Essential when we look at the average model there is: Level 1 – Seed or Startup; Level 2 – Developmental; Level 3 – Growth/Survival; Level 4 – Expansion/Success; Level 5 – Benchmarking; Level 6 - Continuous Process Improvement.
Auditors are in the optimum position to have a positive impact on each of the stages as well as the entire business lifecycle; providing of course, the business has objectively measured where they are in the growth model cycle. Very few businesses know because very few actually measure where they are; many take a pot-shot guess [SWAG] based on revenue or perception.
Each stage of a business maturity or growth stage has certain innate characteristics that distinguish it from other stages. Auditing and assessing these characteristic provide businesses with the ability to forecast challenges and risk/uncertainty of having the ability to seamlessly progress to the subsequent stage efficiency with minimal to no disruption to the business.
