Agendashift™ Assessments: inclusive • non-prescriptive • framework-agnostic

Global survey: Deliberately Adaptive Organisation, mini edition

  1. Global Survey: Agendashift Delivery Assessment, mini edition, the classic values-based assessment
  2. Global survey: Deliberately Adaptive Organisation, mini editionyou are here
  3. Global survey: Outside-in Strategy Readiness Assessment, mini edition

You can administer your own team surveys (up to 10 participants per survey) with the mini edition assessment templates via our free 14-day trial. Visit Upgrade your account for how to access the full range of templates, and without limitations on survey size.


  • Over four short pages you will be scoring a total of twelve prompts (three per page) on a scale of 1-4
  • Before you begin, think about the all organisational scopes (possibly plural) on whose behalf you might wish to respond
  • As you score each prompt, try to answer for all of those scopes; where that is difficult, answer for the scope or scopes you most strongly identify with
  • On a final review page that brings all your scores together, you will have 6 stars to spend across 3-6 prompts, identifying those prompts you think should be given further consideration
