See Your Scope & Gap Analysis
Through to Completion


Scope and gap analysis are pivotal components to the success of any significant communication initiative, including learning and development, technical writing, QA, and even corporate and marketing comms. Gap analysis can enable a systematic approach to evaluating the current state of your programs, whether they impact specific business units or the entire enterprise, identifying gaps between the existing strategic plans and desired outcomes. An effective gap analysis allows you to focus your efforts on defining the scope of work required for future state improvement to the company’s performance.

A well-executed scope analysis sets the boundaries for your project, defining its goals, objectives, deliverables, constraints, and budgetary considerations. In tandem, a thorough gap analysis report can identify the gaps between the current performance and the desired benchmarks. Together, they form the blueprint for strategic decision-making, resource allocation, and the overall enhancement of your business performance initiatives.

Thorough Needs Assessment

We begin by conducting a comprehensive needs assessment to understand your organization’s unique requirements, challenges, and aspirations. This foundational step sets the stage for a tailored scope and gap analysis that resonates with your corporate strategy, communicating effectively through all of its elements. Often, we begin with a SWOT analysis to determine the depth and breadth of the need, which can involve documentation and content spanning multiple operational disciplines, including:

  • Quality documents (especially in manufacturing and regulated environments)
  • SOPs, Work Instructions, onboarding processes, and proposals
  • User Manuals and Administrator/Developer Guides
  • Learning & Development assets (for employees, customers, and Sales Enablement)
  • Marketing materials (white papers, success stories, data sheets, etc.)
  • Corporate content (town halls, change management initiatives, executive comms, etc.)


Identifying and Analyzing Gaps

TimelyText places a strong emphasis on meticulous gap analysis. We employ a variety of methodologies, such as surveys, interviews, market research, and data analytics, to identify performance gaps across your existing initiatives. Whatever your product or service, our goal is to uncover opportunities for improvement and innovation.
