Business Problems We Solve
Every business was established commonly to solve a problem in society, make life easier for people, commercialise a talent or hobby of the founder(s) and, most popular, to make a profit for the owners.
It is, however, widespread to see most businesses collapse within a few years of establishment or even remain stagnant in their growth over the succeeding years. The reason for this is low sales caused by an inability to get more clients, which could be caused by, among many other factors, a lack of effective sales and marketing plan to be followed.
One significant factor that is mainly overlooked when looking for reasons for business failures is “inefficiency”, otherwise called “waste”. This problem is visible in almost every business, so there is a need to identify and remove inefficiencies from the business operating processes constantly.
How to identify these inefficiencies is made easy by Business Diagnostics, the service Astute offers to help cure your business problems and set you on your way to achieving your objectives.
Anything that does not add value slows down work processes, becomes an obstacle for moving work through the stages to satisfying the customer, and increases costs, among many others, are waste.

What Is Business Diagnostics?
Business diagnostics is assessing your entire business to identify reasons for unsatisfactory performance. It is a process used to assess the health of your business. It allows you to determine the symptoms of problems in your business by analysing different areas through carefully crafted questions to elicit specific responses.
Conducting a business diagnostic is a multistage process from diagnostic to practice that starts with identifying symptoms of underperformance and establishes causal linkages between those symptoms and the performance of your business.
The assessment is done on all aspects of your business to identify the root causes of the problems you face that prevent you from achieving your business objectives. Business Diagnostics helps you professionally solve your most challenging business problems, with the issues repeating themselves.
We start by doing a general health check of your business before drilling down to the various functions to identify the exact problems that need fixing. Through our service, we can help you determine how to significantly improve the net profit of your business over the coming 12 months and long into the future.
All you must do is give us the basic information we require about your business, with which we will conduct our pervasive research to come up with the same business plan you need.
