ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE and PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT

Focuses on the Link between Organizational Culture and bottom-line Performance measures such as profitability, growth, quality, innovation, customer and employee satisfaction. We focus on four key questions about your organization Mission, Adaptability, Involvement, and Consistency.

Each of these organizational traits is further broken down into three indexes. These indexes describe specific behaviours in business language to make the results both relevant and actionable in your organization.

At the centre of the model are “Beliefs and Assumptions.” Each of us have deeply held beliefs about our organization, our coworkers, our customers, our competitors and our industry. These beliefs and assumptions, and their associated behaviors, determine the culture of an organization. The model and surveys allow us to reveal the underlying beliefs and assumptions in recognizable and measurable ways that impact organizational performance.
