Taking a moment to reflect on how much your business has grown and what you have overcome along the way is a healthy exercise for a business. However, there are several reasons we fail to do this and end up not making the most out of the insight we have fought so hard to develop. That is where Understanding Insight comes in.
Understanding Insight is the process of uncovering assumptions and increasing awareness about the way your business operates. This is done through curiosity and legitimate interest in the core problem that your business was created to solve.
The goal is for you to learn about your business and the decisions that have led to the processes you are operating with today. The questions that are asked throughout the process will provide value by promoting a discussion of first principles and not instructing “This is how it should be done”.
The idea is not to come in and tell you how to operate. But instead, to ask questions that allow you to see your business through a different lens. This different perspective will allow you to step out of the weeds and see the full landscape of your business. From this perspective, the areas in which you are deviating from your core business, the accepted shortcomings, and the outdated habits become far more evident. You have the insight, you just need to take the time to properly leverage it.
