Three assessments are available through a Licensed Professional:
- ‘Teaser Assessment’ – allows any number of employees in the organization to participate in a self-assessment against 9 principles that depict a culture committed to excellence. The assessment takes 5 minutes to complete. A brief feedback report is available that shares the assessment ratings and highlights the direct relationships with the best management practices.
- ‘Full Assessment’ – allows any number of employees in the organization to participate in a self-assessment against the principles and best management practices common to high performing organizations. The assessment takes between 20 and 40 minutes to complete depending on organization size. Brief and detailed feedback reports are available. The brief report provides a snapshot of the ratings and highlights strengths and opportunities for improvement. The detailed report shares assessment ratings, open-ended comments and an action-oriented improvement plan to address gaps.
- ‘Third-Party Full Assessment’ – provides an independent and objective assessment and delivers a Certificate of Completion and detailed feedback report. Upon request, the detailed feedback report can be further augmented with analysis, recommendations and best-in-class examples.
The automated assessment and reporting tool is being used to do the 'first global assessment on the current state of organizational excellence' https://organizationalexcellencespecialists.ca/workshops-events/global-oe-index/ . Any size or type of organization may participate in the research study and compare their confidential results to the aggregate results for others by organization size, industry sector and region (country). Links to the Teaser and Full Assessment are available on this webpage.
