Yes, of course!
- If the firm believes they have value! To put it simply, if the firm disagrees with me and feels that this exercise provides them with benefits, then by all means, have them conducted.
- If a prospect virtually mandates that the composite(s) that align with their strategy have them done, and you feel that by having them conducted, you'll stand a better chance of winning the business
- If you find that for your primary composites the market fairly often inquires into whether or not examinations are done.
Are there times when they should absolutely NOT be done? Well, one particular case comes to mind:
- For non-marketed composites.
We know that some firms do have them done, but don't understand why. If you do, please let me know the reason(s) why. If you're a verifier and conduct them, chime in, too! And, if you have them done but don't know why, ask your verifier and tell me what they report, as I am curious as to the benefits they provide you for the costs involved. Thanks!
