Transparency as the starting point for operational improvement programs

Packaging and modules of the Health Check Assessment

 

Complete 360° Health Check Assessment

 

Our full 360° Health Check takes care of the individually relevant aspects of all business critical aspects described in the 7 S model, including interfaces and the combined performance. 

 

It allows a more under the skin perspective, than a view on individual modules or single aspects will do and give you a clear view on the company status and decision basis for further action.

Targeted Smart Check modules and Speciality Services - tailored to your individual needs

In many cases the relevant “areas of concern” can be roughly located by the shareholder or the management.

Alternatively to the full 360° Health Check and to ensure the most targeted approach according your individual needs, 2i international has defined a pre-packaged set of Smart Check modules which cover the most common aspects.

These packages can be put in action individually or in any combination. In any case the 7-S model is our methodological framework, which we use to analyze companies and to generate the required transparency for any further action.
