Commercial Questionnaire


As you consider these questions, keep a few things in mind:

Give qualitative (not quantitative) information.It’s best to start with questions, not answers; that’s the
best way to get to the heart of the matter and reduce the risk of missing the real issues. There’s always
more than one way to resolve a problem or create an outcome. If this is hard, list your hopes and dreams
for the business and/or describe something you have seen or experienced somewhere else.

Celebrate differences of opinion. If there are differences of opinions amongst decision makers, document
all of them. That way you can address everyone’s concerns and create something that works for everyone.

Don’t try to solve all of your problems, just express your desires, even if they seem at odds with each other or impossible to obtain. Problem solving comes later in the process.

Don’t be afraid to think about what your “perfect world” would be like. Getting a clear picture of your dream will help you to attain it.

Try to anticipate future needs or changes. Think about the details that would accommodate your
vision here and now and for years to come.

Find examples of homes you like. Consider images of particular details that you like, or ones that create a good mood or feeling, and maybe pictures that you are simply drawn to. The easiest way to organize and share ideas is with Pinterest. Don’t feel compelled to answer every question. If a question is not relevant to your situation, just skip it.
