Creating and sustaining organizational effectiveness in your business through integrated organizational assessments and surveys.

Organizational Assessments and Surveys for Creating High-Performance Organizations

Advancing your business for long-term transformation requires insightful organizational effectiveness assessments and surveys. Through effective organizational assessments you would get the organization insight and information to address key issues and strategic challenges—and organizational effectiveness measures—relevant to your strategic and competitive situation. Aligned with focused exploration of organizational effectiveness factors, here are three business-linked, real time organizational assessment tools you would find helpful.

Colaboratively exploring critical issues promoting a healthy and attractive organization for sustainable high performance

Organizational Health and Attractiveness Survey

To sustain organizational effectiveness, start with getting objective, useful organizational effectiveness insight.

You could do this through an organizational health and attractiveness survey focusing on issues such as:
1. How is your organization or business rating on dimensions, messures or factors of organizatinal health and attractiveness?
2. What determines how your organization is rating?
3. What factors hinder or promote organizational health and attractiveess in your organization?
4. How well is your organization promoting people's actualizing behaviors and attitudes?
5. What defines the intrinsic and manifest character of your organization—in relation to organizational synergy and attractiveness, and functional interdependencies of organizational systems, subsystems, facets and processes?

Through real-time, strategy-linked and integrated organizational enabling survey, in the form of, say, Organizational Health and Attractiveness Survey, your business and its people could colaboratively explore critical issues promoting a healthy and attractive organization for sustainable high performance.

Changing the organizational conditions to promote sustainable high performance

Benefits of Business-wide Organizational Health and Attractiveness Survey

The benefits of such a business-wide Organizational Health and Attractiveness Survey include:

  1. You would be able to identify ways your organization could work more efficiently and effectively.
  2. You would gain insight that could enhance organizational agility and responsiveness.
  3. You would have quality information to build an organizational and business environment conducive to self-leadership and high performance.
  4. You would be able to unravel root causes and fundamental issues hindering organizational health and attractiveness.
  5. You would understand where your business is in relation to metrics of organizational health and poise.
  6. You would be able to create the basis for your people and key stakeholders to meaningfully engage in and explore values, knowledge, attitudes and attributes underpinning your organization's systems and processes.

Overall, through appropriate monitoring and data feedback, your business, and its people and key stakeholders could understand and change the organizational conditions to promote sustainable high performance.

Repositioning your organization for excellence

Organizational Effectiveness Survey

You could use organizational effectiveness surveys and roundtables to promote people's commitment to organizational effectiveness and high performance for strategic advantage.

To monitor key metrics or indices of sustainable high performance and reposition your organization for excellence, undertake an annual in-house Organizational Effectiveness Survey. Such a survey would start with a consultative and interactive exercise and roundtable with key stakeholders in your business. On the basis of the outcome of the roundtable and exploratory interaction, you would be able to develop an 'Organizational Effectiveness Survey Plan' to guide the survey process and program.

From the organizational effectiveness survey, your business and its key people would engage on, and agree, an agenda and mandate to be pursued towards enhanced organizational effectiveness and what should be done in specific terms to attain that agenda and fulfil the mandate. Developing an organizational health and effectiveness inventory would be a helpful step toward this.

Engaging on issues fostering effective organizational synergy

Organizational Health and Effectiveness Scorecard

Developing and operating an 'Organizational Health and Effectiveness Scorecard' could give your organization a linchpin to build a road map for managing organizational health, attractiveness and high-performance on a sustainable basis.

It would provide your business a solid basis for engaging on issues fostering effective organizational synergy. Also, it would give your people confidence to commit to a strategic business vision of organizational leadership and high-performance.

You may incorporate organizational health and poise factors—and other factors developed in light of your strategic situation—in the organizational health and effectiveness scorecard to enhance its relevance and integrity. You could operate your Organizational Health and Effectiveness Scorecard in one-to-three-year development and review cycle, depending on your business strategic and competitive situation and resources.
