A Strategic Performance Assessment

VStrat is a suite of business and organization performance assessments that quickly pin point your clients’ best opportunities for strategic business improvement. These assessments will clearly illustrate the degree of alignment (or lack thereof) among the senior executives and between management and staff. In addition to providing performance scores for all 35 business disciplines, this tool answers the question: Are the senior managers on the same page and to what degree are your employees engaged and committed?

The VStrat report compares results for your client with the over 4,000 organizations in our global best practice database. The report includes a “Strategic Performance Index” and an overall “Report Card” which provides the overall performance score for your client in relation to this database.

Developed with the support of UCLA and Pepperdine University, VStrat assessments are rooted in fact-based primary and secondary research, yet are designed with practical business application in mind.

The underlining framework of these assessments is the Organizational Dynamic Model which covers 35 business disciplines. These disciplines are tied to three critical areas, Organization Strategy, Organization Design, and Organization Culture.
