Understanding the current state of your organization lays the foundation to accurately identifying areas of improvement as well as the correct intervention to meet your needs. RCI is skilled in conducting a variety of assessments and developing tailored solutions.
There are many reasons to conduct organizational assessments. Organizational assessments follow a systems approach to analyze a proposed transformation, determine the impacts of the transformation on the organization, assess the preparedness of the organizational entities to adopt the transformation, and assess the "people and organizational" risks associated with the transformation. OA is often used to generate information that will be useful in planning and decision-making, identify resources (human and other) that the organization can use to effectively improve its performance, identify needs that should be addressed through specific actions, or to respond to a need to change an organization's performance. Below are some common assessments that RCI can conduct.
Whether you need to assess your external environment, or your organizational performance, motivation, or capacity, RCI is here to conduct organizational assessments and provide you with the insight you need to make important business decisions, identify performance gaps, generate a future-state vision, and develop targeted solutions to address your organization’s specific state for now, and where you want to be.
This assessment examines all functional business areas within the organization with a systematic lens. From the assessment we can determine areas of strength, and work to maximize them within the system. We will also identify areas of opportunities and develop interventions to address them, ensuring that the upstream and downstream processes and/or other affected organizational areas are also controlled for.
Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a visual means to depict and improve the flow of materials, data and value-added processing by highlighting the waste and variation inherent to every process. A VSM serves as the roadmap for identifying and objectively prioritizing the process improvements that will yield the largest benefits.
If your organization is ready to begin implementing lean, this assessment is the first step in your journey. This tool has been developed over years of working with the Toyota Production System, and assesses your organization based on lean principles and identifies where RCI efforts should begin. Using this tool, we can determine where your company is in terms of lean and can tailor the tools and implementation plan that fits your organization. We will also produce a Value Stream Map in order to uncover points of opportunity within the organization.
Use this diagnostic tool at the beginning of a change initiative to evaluate and learn where your organization stands in its ability to change. From this tool, we then develop a customized approach to change management based on your company's results to increase the likelihood of sustainable and impactful change.
RCI can examine and assess training needs at an organizational, department, team, or individual level. Training needs analysis refers to the process used to determine whether training is necessary, if training can accomplish the desired goal, and is the critical first step in the training development process. RCI conducts training needs analysis at multiple levels (organization, job, person), using multiple methods, to determine the best training development needs and goals.
Over 70% of change initiatives fail. Transforming your organization and culture requires a broad perspective and holistic approach to addressing and sustaining change. RCI will assess the current state of the mindset, behaviors, and organizational culture and develop a custom roadmap for success based on the culture of your organization.
Environmental analysis is a strategic tool used to identify all the external and internal elements that can affect the organization’s performance. The analysis entails assessing the level of threat or opportunity the factors might present. These evaluations are later translated into the decision-making process, which helps to align strategies with the firm’s environment.
Workforce agility is an organization's ability to rapidly respond to and cope with internal and external environmental changes. Workforce agility is important, as it is a driver of organizational agility. RCI assesses various dimensions of Workforce Agility and provides you with action items to improve in areas of opportunity. Maximize the utilization of your workforce, engage your employees, and create and environment for them to thrive. Greater business success will follow.
