What's Your Strategy Quotient (SQ)?

Strategy is about position. How your company is positioned in the market will determine its long term success. If you have no strategy, or an unsound strategy, your company will flounder while others move confidently forward.

Strategy is about planning and execution. Without action, your intentions simply wither and decay. They’re like the tree you plant but never water. Unrealized plans create a culture of defeat. To achieve competitive success, you need both plan and execution, thought and action.

Measure your Strategy Quotient (SQ). You can learn your company’s Strategy Quotient right now. The assessment below just takes two minutes, but the benefits could last a lifetime. Answer the following questions truthfully -- honesty is the starting point for change. Your answers should reflect how your business works today, not how you wish it were. You'll immediately receive a free report with suggested remedies to get you headed in the right direction.
