How BIGGER© Works

Each team member completes an in-depth BIGGER© questionnaire. The responses are analysed using STC’s algorithms to give two levels of insight:

  • Scores for each step of BIGGER©
  • Scores for the 8 Further Attributes needed at every stage

We produce a detailed report identifying how each team member can plan better. This report forms the basis of a Business Improvement Day.
