Genap BV says about 2Sherpa's Optimise Assessment & Project approach:

Our last Ready2Expand assessment got an average rating of 8.1 (out of 10)! This customer is in general very satisfied with the process and outcome of the assessment.
An improvement we are going to make is the communication between project manager and the participants. Sometimes it's hard to get the purpose of an assessment right.
And actually that's the purpose of the assessment. Does everyone understands the next step?
