Does you business make people think WOW, that's amazing?
At The Alpha Group we make certain that you create a business that WOWs both you, your people and your customers.
So, how does this happen?
Easy, its a six step-process using the power of the peer-to-peer advisory board.
Firstly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify what is your strategic problem.
Today, most of us are competing in a world where there is a vast oversupply of commodity services, products and businesses. The majority of these services, products and businesses meet your quality requirements, yet many are perceived as DULL. So, in many cases, customers use lowest price to select which of these quality, dull services, products and businesses that they chose to purchase or deal with.
Those services, products and businesses that achieve high, profitable sales have WOW factors i.e. they excite and delight customers. In most service and product industries there are examples of companies that have reinvented your service, product and businesses with WOW factors. Take time to rate your current business.
Example of a Service, which Hospital would you select?
Barely adequate: Long delays, overcrowded, dirty and dangerous, staff are stressed and overworked.
Quality but dull: Efficient successful operations, clean, patients have good experiences.
A WOW experience: Patients get better much faster, staff are always happy and caring.
Example of a Product, which car would you select?
Barely adequate: 1970 : Ponderous, unreliable, thirsty.
Quality but dull: 1995 : Unexciting, reliable, comfortable.
A WOW product: 2020 : Exhilarating & cool, cheap to run, zero emissions.
Secondly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you evaluate the WOW factors of your current, selected business.
Using the 10 FastGrowth WOW factors, you evaluate your current business. They assess each factor on a scale 1 to 10 where 1 is barely adequate and 10 is outstanding. They use your own subjective ratings. On completion, you urgently ask your customers for your ratings.
