50 Questions to ensure you don’t make the same mistakes again!

50 Questions to ensure you don’t make the same mistakes again!

At PracticeNav we deal with Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Massage therapist, Osteopaths and a whole host of other healthcare professionals in business who all have similar problems in their business. Our job is to review what’s working well and modify what isn’t working. It’s only when you start to drill down into the systems and processes a business has that you can identify where the problems are. December is the perfect time of year to review what you’ve achieved in the last 12 months, what worked well and what didn’t go to plan. Set out below is a simple list of questions to start the process of reviewing your year. Take an hour to simply jot down some answers and a score beside each one. This is just an example you can personalise your list to suit your needs.
