This Quarterly Business Review (QBR) is an excellent resource for documenting the way our offering can help you achieve your goals—and eventually reach your vision. Use this template first to document a set of goals related directly to the ways your organization uses our offering. Then return to it on a quarterly basis to assess our progress toward our goals and to make a plan for the next quarter.
A quarterly business review (QBR) presents your stakeholders with progress toward their business goals and shows what factors have contributed to the success or failure of those objectives.
QBRs also make sure that customers are satisfied and engaged with their business plans. The review goes over the highlights and important updates from the last 90 days and outlines the goals, plans, and strategies the company will follow for the next 90 days.
A QBR is a great resource for routine project checkups. It makes sure the company is moving in the right direction. A QBR is also a good time to organize goals by priority to ensure that budgets are followed and desired outcomes are being reached.
Using the template, follow these steps to guide your quarterly business review
Start by defining the value your business offers and outcomes you want to achieve. In other words, “what is the overarching impact your product or offering has on the organization?”
In this step, you want to keep your business value in mind, so all goals that are defined later are aligned with the business value proposition.
Next, evaluate your current goals. You will use them to decide which goals to move forward in the next quarter and which goals need to be readjusted and redefined.
List your current quarter business goals. Then ask yourself the following questions:
For example, you could stop “requiring a payment method at sign-ups” or change the “sign-up process” as a goal.
Last, based on the performance of the existing goals, how will these goals improve or evolve? Do some of the goals need refinement to better match the customer’s needs?
For each new goal, keep in mind the following:
Start from an untouched template
Start from a mural with sample content
