  • Employees about their working conditions.
  • Customers about your service quality.
  • Citizens about important community issues.
  • Staff about their training needs.

icon-360360 or Multi-rater Assessments – collect feedback from observers regarding an individual’s behaviour or performance. You might assess…

  • The impact of a leader on followers and others.
  • The behaviour of team members as seen by their co-workers.
  • The performance of a CEO according to the Board of Directors.

On-line tools are a great way to collect data. Do-it-yourself and off-the-shelf solutions seem helpful, but come with hidden costs and limitations. 

 

The sponsors of your project can count on us for…

  • Customization: Your needs and audience are unique. We help you ask your questions, your way, using branded tools.
  • Rapid Deployment: Your business moves quickly – so do we. We get your custom survey or assessment on-line, working, fast.
  • Low Cost: Off-the-shelf isn’t custom. Do-it-yourself has hidden costs. We deliver the value of customization, for the cost of off the shelf.

  • Practical Analysis: Our reporting highlights what is “practically” useful, rather than what is “statistically” significant.
  • Quick Turnaround: The faster you get the right data to the right people, the quicker things happen. We report on your schedule.

Rule number one is, “If you won’t act, don’t ask.” Even with the right data, change can be difficult. The quality of your leadership will be tested.
