Step Two

Business Assessment

A business assessment should be a requirement of any business plan.

The Second Step in Our Process

A Business Assessment should be a requirement in all businesses. Understanding and knowing the true health of your company is critical to its future. Much like any person having an annual medical physical performed by their Doctor… a business must have an annual physical to determine its quality and health.

The Business Assessment is a confidential and comprehensive analysis of your business. The assessment is, by design, engineered to determine what is working and what is NOT working in your business, what impact it is having on your business, and what must be done to correct any problems (ailments) that exist.

At the conclusion of a Business Assessment, our highly experienced and trained Business Analyst will make recommendations to the business owner (much like a Doctor would do for a patient) as to what corrective action (prescription) would be necessary to improve profits, grow the business, and provide a better quality of life to the business owner.

The Business Assessment is conducted on-site with you in your business, and can take up to three days.  Our Business Analyst comes to you.

During COVID-19, we recognize that may not be practical or even possible.  However, now more than ever, you may need our help.  Because of this, we have designed a Virtual Business Assessment.  

Let’s get through this together.

Our Surgical Process to a Healthy Company

We at Smart Business Doctor, LLC. take a type of medical approach to solving business problems.  

If you think of it – your business has all the same components as your body, with complex systems and moving parts that all need attention, either by a general practitioner or a specialist.  

But who do you need for what?  

That’s where the assessment comes in.  Consider our Business Analyst, your General Practitioner.  They will assess, and make recommendations for the specialists, prescriptions, and plans of action you may require to achieve optimal health and wellness.

The Process is (3) three steps.  When do you want to get started?

Diagnose

We offer a free confidential consultation with a business expert. This will help you determine if we can provide any positive assistance to the current and future health of your company. Currently we are assessing recovery options, action plans and reopening protocols stemming from the effects of COVID-19.

Discover

We conduct a confidential proprietary Business Assessment of your company-- similar to what a medical doctor would conduct on a patient with an annual physical, to determine what ailments your business may have. We have modified our assessment to be able to conduct a "Virtual Assessment" at this time.

Implement

If you and Smart Business Doctor, LLC. determine that a professional cure or specialized prescription to your business will assist in making your business a healthy, efficient, and profitable company, then we will implement on site and deliver sustainable solutions.

Industries We Serve

Smart Business Doctor serves a wide variety of industries and offers a range of Engineering Solutions for each.

My brothers and I were blown away by the (​take charge) approach to solve our productivity problems. The attention to detail by the Smart Business Doctor staff, was more than we could have ever expected. Even my job description was changed, and I am working in the business, contributing in a much better way. The greatest benefit we received is that because our labor costs are much lower, we are more competitive with our bids and we have started to pick up more work and more customers. On behalf of our entire family, we appreciate all you have done.

When Smart Business Doctor first conducted the ‘Business Assessment’ I really did not think my business had very many problems, once I saw, the type of tools I was missing to track my financial status, it was a real eye opener as to, how far off track my business was. The Smart Business Doctor project director, who provided us with the systems and controls to help us take our company to a high level of professionalism and credibility was amazing. Their consult absolutely changed the morale and integrity of our office staff, and assisted in building a more trusting relationship with our bank…thank you, to all the Smart Business Doctor geniuses that saved my company.

Bottom line, Smart Business Doctor probably kept me from BIG TROUBLE, or saved me from multi-million dollar lawsuits, my business was totally out of control, I had so much liability exposure and I was running scared that I would never be able to get my arms around my problems. I had no systems in place and what money I was making, was totally, by mistake. Jeff, the Project Director taught me how to be a businessman, taught me how to take control of my business, taught me how to manage. Without him, who knows where I would be today. Smart Business Doctor is not cheap, but worth every penny I paid, and I receive a return on my dollar spent, every day.

When we considered bringing on Smart Business Doctor for advice, I was not quite sure that we could improve the bottom line at all. I was very worried about employee morale. I did not want to let any employees go or compromise are good status and great reputation. The management quickly saw issues from a different point of view. We would have never thought of these remedies. We are now able to continue as before, but with a much better profit margin.
