After establishing trust with the leader of the company, the shareholders can opt for a Viablity Study.
The CEO/leader can introduce me as an expert for the situation at hand, trusted by the shareholders and the leadership.
With this the seriousness of the situation is acknowledged and that an intervention might be next. This is amplified as people will google me.
The Viablity Study consists of the following steps:
- Establish a list of the ones that I will interview. It is important to get a 360 view on the matter, so the list might be extensive. The interviews, preferably face-to-face are scheduled in one or two days.
- Within a couple of days I will analyse the information and deduct the core problem, the visionary/break-through solution, and the steps to execute the solution.
- I'll present the Viabilty Study to the shareholders and leader of the company.
If we align on the Viability Study and my persona might be best suited to execute on it, we can discuss my offer to the shareholders.
