“The 7 Essentials Scorecard provides an executive team with a key set of insights, which become the basis for an organization's strategy and framework, to sustain exponential growth.”

Senior Vice President and General Manager, Online Services Division, Citrix Systems, Inc.
We keep score in business; corporate finance, balanced scorecards and six sigma are all popular tools today. What tool is there to track how management teams are utilizing the key management practices identified in the 7 EssentialsSM Workshop to achieve exponential revenue growth? We had to build one so that you could benchmark your business growth performance against the management practices of America’s highest growth companies.
Our approach was to utilize the framework of personal 360 feedback tools. If you have ever taken a personal 360 feedback assessment, you will recognize features of the 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard process. Personal feedback tools measure the type and diversity of perceptions across a variety of associates from superiors, peers and subordinates. The 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard is the first company-wide 360 feedback tool - not about you, but about your company and how it performs against the success pattern of America's highest growth companies.
It is a fact, over 90% of Blueprint Companies that achieved exponential growth to a billion and beyond, have utilized five or more of these seven key management practices to achieve compounding revenue growth and returns. This scorecard uniquely measures your company's progress to outperform against each of the practices identified in the 7 EssentialsSM Workshop.
The 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard can be utilized by individuals, management teams and across portfolios of companies. It can be applied to standalone companies, business units of large corporations and private companies. For venture capital funds and corporate business development officers, the Portfolio Heat Map summarizes your adherence to the 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard for all of the companies or business units in the portfolio. All of the above enables teams and portfolio leaders the opportunity to target actions to close the gap on any one or more of the essential elements!
The 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard is a tool that is meant to be integrated into your company's management approach. It is a tool that is also utilized within The 7 EssentialsSM Workshops and Business Advisory services provided by David Thomson.
Fees for the use of the 7 EssentialsSM Scorecard are:
Personal Scorecard = Free
Company/Management Team Scorecard = $3000
Portfolio Heat Map = Priceless! (Actually, dependent on portfolio size)
