The Assessment Book

The Assessment Book includes seven self-assessment instruments—validated by professionals and organizations including IBM and Hewlett Packard—that provide solid guidance to calibrate where your organization is currently and help you decide where it should be.

These instruments address the issue of “what” before “how.” Whilst many professional surveys, books, guidelines, and support help available today are in the form of how-to approaches, research tells us that starting with implementation can often lead to consequences other than desirable results.

Please contact us for more information about using these instruments in your organization.
