NOTE: This free toolkit is being made available by The WOW Business Advisory in an effort to help businesses create jobs and strengthen communities.
Welcome to Drive My Biz to WOW
The Drive My Biz to WOW online toolkit is a project of The WOW Business Advisory and is based on the "Five P" model of professional management that was first introduced in the book, Five P's to a "WOW!" Business, written by Bill Matthews.
The Five P model is a simple, sequential, repeatable process depicted graphically as a Racetrack.
- You begin by completing the WOW Business Assessment Survey, which provides your organization with a baseline score between 0 and 100, while also identifying exactly what issues need to be addressed.
- You then follow the Five P process and its 23 sequential steps. Each step includes a video and an accompanying exercise found in the downloadable Driver's Logbook. While we highly recommend that you follow the steps in sequence, you're free to select any tool you need, and in any order.
- To monitor your progress, be sure to complete the WOW Business Assessment Survey periodically to see how your organization's score has changed.
If You Need Assistance
Users of the toolkit don't often ask for help, but if the need arises, we have a Network of Authorized WOW Advisors available at reasonable rates. Just contact us with your specific question, and be sure to include your city, state, and country so we can select an Advisor based on your geographic location.
