Innovation and Effectiveness Diagnostic

The level of disruption that is driving the operating environments of all organizations will only continue to accelerate. As a result, there is no dispute that innovation is critical for organizations to survive and thrive.

An effective culture can make innovation a reality. Unfortunately, organizational culture is too often unwelcoming of anything that threatens to disrupt the comfortable status quo, including innovations.

The organizational cultures we create and support innovation, not discourage it, and the Innovation and Effectiveness Diagnostic can produce data to prove that.

INDIVIDUAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL PERSPECTIVES

We have long had the opportunity to measure individual performance through 360 measures. The organizational perspective to understand how we can change culture to drive innovation, organizational effectiveness and productivity has lacked the same scientific rigour. Now the the Innovation and Effectiveness Diagnostic applies a tool backed by proven, cutting-edge research to produce that missing perspective and data for understanding.

HOW IT WORKS

The Innovation and Effectiveness Diagnostic analyses the strengths and weaknesses of your organization and its teams through an easy to complete online survey that lets your people express their views about your organization.

It provides an overall score for organizational effectiveness the Organizational Effectiveness Measure (OEM) – and from this, the degree to which your organizational culture is either helping or hindering innovation can be determined.
