The Strategic Culture Gauge is Chandler Macleod’s statistically valid and scientifically developed culture assessment diagnostic tool. Re-validated in 2013 after three years’ research and development and more than 20 years’ experience in developing organisational culture, the Strategic Culture Gauge is a customisable tool that assists you in shaping the desired culture to meet your organisational goals.
The Strategic Culture Gauge can measure 24 cultural qualities – we will work with you to determine the top 3-6 core qualities that are essential to delivering your organisation’s strategy.
One of the key improvements of the Strategic Culture Gauge is that it is simple and user friendly. Easy to set up and administer, the full culture diagnostic assessment takes on average only 20 minutes to complete. The language used in the assessment is purposefully simple, relevant and straightforward.
Benchmarked against your strategy
Many culture assessment and development programs will benchmark your culture against the industry or competitors. While an industry benchmark is a good way to ‘fit in’, it doesn’t provide a competitive edge, or allow for other variables in your business strategy that makes your organisation unique.
The Strategic Culture Gauge recognises that culture is unique to each organisation and measures the key cultural qualities that are the enabling or limiting ingredients to delivering your strategy.
Choose from three reporting options to help you make most effective use of your culture assessment results:
- Automated This report summarises the quantitative data from the SCG and preanalysis of open-ended qualitative questions. The report represents the data in the form of gauges, tables and stacked frequency distribution charts.
- Blended In addition to the information contained in the automated report, this report is supplemented with a detailed consultant-written analysis outlining key themes, strengths and limitations that emerged from the SCG and open-text responses.
- Premium The premium report contains a more comprehensive level of analysis utilising desktop review, interviews, focus groups and further analysis of opentext survey responses. Results are focused within the context of the organisation’s specific purpose and strategy. Insights are presented back to the executive leadership team with actionable recommendations.
