Trainer & facilitator programmes

We help leaders and engaged team members at every level to gain fluency in the language of outcomes – developing and pursuing strategies together, innovating, learning, and adapting as the organisation renews and transforms itself from the inside. More...

Agendashift Assessments

Done well, an assessment is an exercise in trust-building. Done badly – flawed in their conception, construction, execution, or follow up – they have the opposite effect, generating not trust but cynicism. Often, they say more about the assessor than the assessed, so choose wisely!

The Agendashift Delivery Assessment is for many people their first experience of Agendashift, and we take that very seriously. Not only does it get quickly to issues that matter to people, it integrates perfectly with our facilitation process to get quickly to outcomes. Not outcomes prescribed by us, but outcomes generated through dialogue and organised for strategic impact.

You can access the tools in several ways:

Assessment templates

Agendashift assessment templates are organised by family, edition, and language.

Dimension 1: Family

There are five template families:

  1. Agendashift delivery assessment – the one on which we've been iterating since 2014 and featured in the Leading with Outcomes module Inside-out strategy: Fit for maximum impact
  2. The Deliberately Adaptive Organisation – the Agendashift assessment – developed for the Leading with Outcomes module Adaptive Organisation: Business agility at every scale
  3. Agendashift Adaptability Assessment – superseded somewhat by the preceding one, this was covered in the 2018 1st edition of the Agendashift book but omitted from the 2nd edition. We still use it from time to time though!
  4. Agendashift Outside-in Strategy Readiness Assessment – developed for the Leading with Outcomes module Outside-in Strategy: Positioned for Success.
  5. Right to Left assessment – a companion to Right to Left: The digital leader’s guide to Lean and Agile (2019, audiobook 2020)

Unless you have a specific need for one of the others, you almost certainly want the first one. But whichever one you choose, you'll get the same inclusive, non-prescriptive, and (above all) outcome-oriented language that has become our hallmark.

Dimension 2: Edition

The edition specifies both the structure and the size of the assessment:

  1. Original edition: the full-sized template – 42 prompts at the latest count – categorised by value (Transparency, Balance, Collaboration, Customer Focus, Flow, Leadership)
  2. Mini edition: like the original edition, but just 3 prompts per category, 18 in total
  3. Pathway edition: the same prompts (mostly) but organised differently, used mainly for reporting purposes (see note below)
  4. Mini pathway edition: an 18-prompt version of the above
  5. Featureban edition: the mini edition, re-purposed (see the Featureban home page)

Authorised facilitators and trainers have have the full range available to them, and there are no charges or restrictions on usage. The free trial gives access to the mini and mini pathway editions only, where available.

Note: We don’t typically recommend collecting survey responses using the pathway or mini pathway editions. Later in the process it’s an option when printing or sharing handouts, useful if you plan to do the Pathway Mapping exercise (chapter 3 and the Mapping activity).

Dimension 3: Language

All editions within all template families are available in English (EN), and most of them in French (FR), German (DE), Korean (KO), and Turkish (TR) also. The more popular templates are available also in Spanish (ES), Farsi (FA), Hebrew (HE), Italian (IT), Dutch (NL), Russian (RU), Swedish (SV), and Ukrainian (UKR).
