If you mean Right Before You Decide To Invest … my favorite question is:

What are the Top 3 or 4 things I’ll learn at the first Board meeting I don’t know now?

I think this Columbo-style question will, in more cases than not, elicit the top few concerns the CEO really has that you may already know a little bit about … but not know how best to prioritize and force rank.
