Are you looking for a legal assessment, like a risk assessment, an impact assessment, a requirements assessment or a readiness assessment? The purpose of an assessment is for us to assess, evaluate or judge your organisation. We have years of experience doing various assessments on specific focus areas. We can also do a gap analysis or a compliance audit, but those are something different.
The benefits of an assessment
An assessment should:
- set out where you currently stand,
- give you insight into your organisation,
- help identify and define the current reality, whatever that might be,
- direct your improvement efforts or next steps, and
- provide a measuring stick towards where you want to be.
