The Workshop

An organizational assessment is a systematic process with a diagnostic tool for obtaining valid information about the performance of an organization to identify important factors that aid or impede the achievement of results. At the same time, the criteria used in the assessment set a benchmark for all of the performance areas being assessed, making it easier to see where and how to improve performance.

Workshop Overview:

This two-day Workshop on Organizational Assessments provides an opportunity to examine a number of models and to see how they can be synthesized into a best practices model. The workshop will cover the following Modules:

The Process

This workshop has a strong foundation in various approaches to Organizational Assessment which have been synthesized to develop a "Best Practices" Model. The workshop will also provide a highly interactive approach by incorporating activities designed to embed this Best Practices model, encourage reflection and explore the pragmatic applications. Throughout the workshop a mix of training modes will be utilized, such as; group discussion, presentations, case studies and exercises. These are designed to align your needs to the workshop content and develop your own approach to conducting Organizational Assessments to help participants put into practice what they have learned.
