How it works

A straightforward process with very insightful and actionable results.

Most companies are skilled at measuring their work outputs—production efficiencies, client or customer satisfaction, profit margins, cost of goods, units sold, etc. KPIs are carefully listed, mapped, reported and examined. But all of these measurements are looking backward at what has already happened.

What employees at all levels know, what they believe, and how they feel about it—in short, your company’s DNA—are some of the clearest predictors of what these KPIs will eventually reveal. Beyond common employee satisfaction surveys or prepackaged executive assessment tools, few companies have much objective, data-driven insight as to what management and employees of the company know, what they believe and how they feel about it.

Managing employees through constant change, communicating with razor sharp effectiveness and ensuring employees are aligned with both the specific business objectives and the strategies designed to deliver them, requires soft skills that are hard to spot in interviews and are beyond deep subject matter expertise. They are also difficult to teach and hard to measure.

Trust the process. It works.

Identify the problems or opportunities

Tell us what symptoms you see that concern your company’s leadership. Is one division struggling to meet their goals? Perhaps several locations are not performing at the pace that your new competitive marketplace requires. Or is your entire workforce still operating under legacy attitudes and norms despite a new urgency for more agile approaches? Maybe an entire segment of your employees simply doesn’t see the strong connection between their efforts and the possibility for advancement. Are you growing quickly and need to identify threats to your organization’s success going forward?

Deploy the diagnostic tools

After working with you to identify areas of your management team, or part of the employee population that require further understanding, Strategia Analytics will deploy a unique and insightful series of diagnostic questions developed in partnership with a professor at the Penn State Smeal College of Business and a top researcher in human behavior on how employees interact with business strategy. Deployed through your company’s email system or other suitable delivery method, there is minimal disruption to the work force or to your management team.

We build the initiatives to close the gaps. Together.

Strategia Analytics will help guide you through your change efforts by coaching you as you develop needed initiatives to close the gap and become the company you want. We’ll use the results from your own diagnostics to guide you, and leverage our experience in what we know has worked elsewhere.

We co-pilot with you until you’re back on course

Over the next year, Strategia Analytics will deploy the Diagnostic Appraisal and reports the results twice more. These mid-course measurements are compared to the initial benchmark results to identify what’s working, and what still needs attention to keep the company on course.
