Seven Strategic Questions

Last week, I wrote about the importance of self-exploration. To begin your journey of self-exploration, here are seven strategic questions you may find helpful:

1)     What business are we in?
2)     What is our core competency?
3)     What are we not?
4)     Where is our pain?
5)     What are our dreams?
6)     What is our risk tolerance?
7)     What is our company DNA?

Spending time with each of these questions can bear unexpected fruits, whether or not you actually conduct an acquisition.
