This initiative came out of a conversation around how to make Missional Entrepreneurship more actionable. The goal is to use your business also as a ministry, but how to know where to start?
Just like we would approach a traditional business consulting, the first step is to assess where they currently are at and what is working well along with where the opportunity areas are.
Step 1: Intake Data
Step 2: Analyze Data
Step 3: Provide Actionable Recommendations
The challenge came to figuring out how to make missional entrepreneurship quantifiable in order to give a score.
The answer was to identify which are the functional areas we would be analyzing and what thresholds would indicate a healthy score.
In traditional business consulting there are a number of areas which are assesed in order to understand the overall health of an organization such as people, product, process and profit. Then to bring in more of the missional side we expanded it to include purpose, place and planet.
ProductHow well are we providing products and services of high quality and wholesome purpose.
PeopleHow rooted are we in our desire is to be kind to and bless our employees.
ProcessHow well do we demonstrate efficiency and kindness throughout our systems.
ProfitHow well do we demonstrate a healthy approach to organizational profitability.
PlaceHow well do we demonstrate interest and generosity to the local community.
PlanetHow well do we demonstrate an attractive and intentional spirituality.
Once the assessment has been taken, a score could then be given in each of the various functional assessmetn areas. This then forms the basis for recommending contextual training, resources or consulting based on the specific needs.
