  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 665 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Astropulse improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 665 standard requirements:

  1. What is your BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated agreement)?

  2. How do you stay inspired?

  3. What does the data say about the performance of the stakeholder process?

  4. What other areas of the group might benefit from the Astropulse teams improvements, knowledge, and learning?

  5. Can the solution be designed and implemented within an acceptable time period?

  6. Instead of going to current contacts for new ideas, what if you reconnected with dormant contacts--the people you used to know? If you were going reactivate a dormant tie, who would it be?

  7. Is the impact that Astropulse has shown?

  8. How do we promote understanding that opportunity for improvement is not criticism of the status quo, or the people who created the status quo?

  9. Are there Astropulse problems defined?

  10. What tools do you use once you have decided on a Astropulse strategy and more importantly how do you choose?

    This is a structured, in-depth review and how to work out how develop the controls and processes that will begin to solve the problem. Knowing what questions to ask is the starting point. The level of questions and analysis required will surprise, but this level of details is essential.

    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).

    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point. However, given the numerous daily distractions entrepreneurs encounter, if you want to do 'deep work' with broad-ranging impact, you have to control your time to make each day a masterpiece. Check Out The Art of Service's Self Assessments.
