How the 7p tool works


It starts with asking the right questions: the survey tool aims to assist your business in realising your next steps by adapting successfully to the new reality’s ways of working.​​​​​​​

The survey’s objective is to collect insights from respondents by asking you to reflect on the current situation of the market and your organisation's place within it. It is mobile-friendly and takes a maximum of 10 minutes to complete.

​​​​​​​The survey results feed into the accompanying benchmark tool.



Within one hour of completing the survey, you will receive a notification e-mail containing a unique response ID and invitation to view your results on the benchmarking site.

Once on the benchmark site, your survey scores are immediately calculated and clearly summarised in a ‘spider’ diagram.​​​​​​​


You can then benchmark your score per ‘P-factor’ with the performance of other respondents, based on sector, country, region and scale.

The benchmark tool also delivers a list of priorty actions based on the survey results. The resulting visual is easy to understand and gives a view on which priorities you are ahead or behind on, compared to your own estimation, but also to your peers. In this way, you have a comparison of your strengths and weaknesses versus the benchmark results.​​​​​​​


At any point, you can export your results into PowerPoint. You can also print the output into a BDO-branded report.
