Insightful and Versatile Total Organization Development Tools

The success of any organizational development project stems from the depth, breadth, and versatility of the analysis/assessments, and the quality of the emerging review — using powerful, robust, focused and valid organizational development tools and techniques which produce solid foundation for sustainable organization intervention.

The versatile total organization development tools/techniques, called OD Synergy tools, help you foster effective organizational synergy and achieve sustainable organizational development and performance. They are potent for transforming your HR and organizational systems and processes for sustainable high performance.

Integrated Organizational Development Systems, Tools and Techniques for Sustainable High Performance

The robust, integrated organizational development tools and techniques we offer for sustainable organizational development and high organizational performance are in the following four key areas:

Organizational Effectiveness Diagnosis

We employ three powerful organizational effectiveness diagnostic instruments. These are:

• Organization Enabling Survey,
• Organization Effectiveness Survey, and
• Organizational Commitment Diagnostic

The Organizational Enabling Survey (or Organization Health and Attractiveness Survey) enables organizations to gain insight on their organizational context and culture to see in what way it is encouraging or supporting sustainable high performance.

The Organization Effectiveness Survey enables you to identify and monitor key indices of sustainable high performance and reposition your organization for excellence.

The Organizational Commitment Diagnostic explores the depth of organizational commitment by the people of an organization. It provides useful information that enables organizations undertake appropriate interventions to enhance people commitment to a vision of corporate excellence.

The Organizational Enabling Survey, the Organization Effectiveness Survey, and the Organizational Commitment Diagnostic are complementary in fostering sustainable high performance in organizations.

High Performance Team Diagnosis

• Team Quality Inventory
• Organizational Commitment Diagnostic

The Team Quality Inventory assists you to diagnose the teamness, interrelationships, role performance, effectiveness, and processes within the teams in your organization. The outcome of the Team Quality Inventory gives you information on the weaknesses and strengths in your teams. This may be necessarily followed by appropriate team building or team improvement effort.

As you saw earlier, the Organizational Commitment Diagnostic explores the depth of organizational commitment by the people of an organization and provides useful information that enables organizations undertake appropriate interventions to enhance people commitment to a vision of corporate excellence.

Organizational Enabling/Culture Building

We employ the Organizational Enabling Survey (or Organization Health and Attractiveness Survey) as a versatile tool to assist organizations in culture diagnostic and culture building.

The Organizational Enabling Survey helps organizations to gain insight on their organizational context and culture in order to discover and explore in what ways it is encouraging or supporting sustainable high performance. This may be necessarily followed by appropriate culture building or culture improvement effort.

Strategic Change Management/Analysis

In order to make strategic change work, two strategic change management actions are critical. First, there must be a vivid understanding and communication of the strategic situation, purpose and direction among the stakeholders. Second, the resources and people must be optimally committed to make the strategic change happen. OD Synergy tools in strategic change management/facilitation enable you to achieve the two with two primary diagnostic tools in strategic change management:
• Strategy Awareness Profile, and
• Change Readiness Diagnostic

The Strategy Awareness Profile helps you to explore and communicate with the stakeholders in your strategic change effort regarding their level of appreciation and understanding of the strategic situation, direction and thrust of your organization. This will facilitate stakeholders' buy-in and commitment to the change process.

The Change Readiness Diagnostic helps you to analyze the extent to which your resources and people are positioned and committed to make your strategic change effort work for the ultimate attainment of your strategic mission and plan. It will also help you with useful data to direct and reinforce the change process so as to attain the desired strategic and operational results.

Three Ways You Can Benefit from Organizational Development Synergy Tools

Your organization can benefit from using the organizational development tools in three primary ways.

First, you may ask us to administer the OD Synergy tools you find relevant to your organization's needs. The outcome will be a detailed report based on the diagnosis.

Second, you may decide that we both help administer the OD Synergy tools you find relevant to your organization's needs and undertake the appropriate organizational development intervention.

Third, you may decide to develop the internal capacity for sustainable organizational development with our service in Organizational Development Internal Capacity Building. This will give your internal HR and Organizational Development specialists licence to the organizational development tools.
