    Honestly - at the extremely low outlay - the capacity to accelerate your journey, increase productivity and be a more informed buyer (when combined with what actual business problems you are trying to solve) I would be extremely hard pressed to not undertake it.

    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.
