The diagnostic and study is informed by survey data and interviews from more than 450 publishers and 30 subject matter experts across the world.
The tool is really interesting. Everyone always want to compare themselves to others, so this is really valuable. I'm actually happy that we didn't receive a high score, because otherwise there would be no actions or ways to improve. We have limited resources and this tool helps up make decisions

These recommendations feel very appropriate. It's great to see that within the recommendations, we are already doing a couple of the things, which gives me a sense of affirmation, but also plenty of new suggestions that we can look to action. A very valid, great set of points.. also, all seven of the sub-recommendations that you selected are perfect.

The project is a great way of understanding where to prioritize our efforts, given minimal capacity.
Editor and Publisher, Times of San Diego
The News Sustainability project and diagnostic tool was a true reflection of where we thought our business was. I love it...we'll make this a part of our planning and not just visit it occasionally - but own it - because it's very, very valuable. And we need to make it a part of our culture.
Publisher and President, Post and Courier
It's a great benchmarking tool for publishers to spot opportunities for growth and build plans to improve. Not unlike the subscriptions lab we were part of, a key value here is the accountability factor. Stopping, taking a breath, seeing how you compare to others, and having a discussion about real opportunities is critically important. We are often consumed fighting the daily 'fires' that it's difficult to make time to strategize where we're going long-term. But I think it's very helpful from that perspective.
