Organizational Assessment

At Makarios Consulting, LLC, we recognize that sustainable change cannot come from without: it must come from within. Therefore, we have developed a unique organizational assessment process that engages our clients' management personnel in a collaborative partnership. By encouraging and achieving change from within, lasting improvements to performance and effectiveness are made possible.

The Complete Leader

While recognizing that each organization is unique, the organizational assessment process follows a basic step-by step approach.

An Organizational Assessment serves many functions:

  • It can define problems that previously were not recognized, and provide tailored solutions
  • It can locate specific areas where training can generate increased productivity
  • It can serve as a regular “check-up” to determine the health of your business and prevent problems from arising.

While recognizing that each organization is unique, the organizational assessment process follows the basic step-by step approach outlined below:

Step 1: Initial Meeting with Client
  • Understand business outcomes
  • Discover management concerns
  • Identify desired outcomes / changes
  • Determine success measures / critical factors
  • Clarify the organizational assessment process
Step 2: Meeting with Group or Individuals Involved
  • Discuss why we are engaging in this process (what needs to change and why)
  • Clarify the organizational assessment process
  • Engage people in the change initiative
Step 3: Data Collection
  • Through the use of interviews, focus groups and/or written surveys, collect information from individuals and groups to provide management with new insights into what is impacting desired results
  • Present written data report to management, summarizing key findings and providing recommendations for improvement
Step 4: Implementation of Recommendations
  • Assist management in clarifying and resolving issues, placing special emphasis on engaging participants and aligning actions
  • Design and delivery of targeted training (if appropriate)
  • Executive coaching (if appropriate)
Step 5: Review
