FAQs

What does the output look like?

We provide two reports; one is a summary of recommendations highlighting your ratings and our overall view of the business, and the other is a working document containing all recommended changes that you can allocate to your team to action and then use to track progress.  We would be happy to walk through some example reports with you if you get in touch. 

When is the best time to schedule this?

Timing is important to get the most value. Most brands audit pre- or immediately post-fundraise, before a major scaling event, if service is less than 99% or if costs are above industry average. We recommend that the Growth Audit is used in a proactive manner to prepare yourself for growth but it has also been used to diagnose business wide challenges as they are happening.in

What am I likely to discover by doing this activity?

We assess risk in the business, identify commercial opportunities, and highlight inefficiency. The outcome is a combination of recommendations from quick wins to big structural change projects – the precise discoveries depend entirely on the brand.

What if I already know what is wrong?

We always identify something that you haven’t thought of yet as we apply a fresh pair of eyes to your business.  If you prefer to go straight into implementation then we can support here too via our project services.

What happens after the Growth Audit has been completed?

Our Director of Supply Chain Services will check in with you at 30, 90, and 180 days post the issue of the report. We will also track your progress in the shared google sheet project tracker. It is up to you to deliver the recommended changes and this is the only way that you will truly realise the value of the audit, but YF can step in to support with change projects too should you be unable to allocate enough resource or lack the necessary expertise.
