I am releasing today a new “Culture Strength Test,” that you can take online, for free. This is by no means a full culture assessment (a service I also offer, of course), but it is a quick way for you to get a sense of how strong your culture is, relative to the needs of today’s economic environment. In the test, you’ll rate 40 simple statements based on how closely they resemble (or don’t resemble) the reality in your organization. At the end, you’ll instantly get a report that analyzes the results and provides some suggestions for next steps. It only takes a few minutes to complete, but it will give you a clear snapshot of where you need to build strength to be more effective in today’s world. Take the test, and see where you stand!
The tool I’m using, by the way, is very cool: www.decisionaire.com. Check the site out, because you may be able to see a way to use the tool in your context. In Decisionaires, you create the questions and can then design a customized report based on the answers an individual provides to the questions. It is somewhat complex to design (I speak from experience), but I think if you do it right, the results are pretty cool (but you be the judge, of course). And no, I did not receive a discount or kickback for saying that. I really think it’s a cool tool!
My Culture Strength Test Decisionaire is free (for now), but you can also charge for them. Maddie and I are developing one right now that will examine “Social Media Readiness” in organizations, and we plan to charge a small fee for that one.
So feel free to share this around. Anyone who is interested in building a stronger culture should be able to glean some insight from this free test.
