Which assessment template?

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

Family

Currently, there are two template families:

  1. Agendashift values-based delivery assessment – this is the main one, the template we've been iterating on since 2014
  2. Agendashift values-based adaptability assessment – this is new, developed in parallel with chapter 5 of the new book

Unless you specifically want to assess your organisation's ability to make change happen, you almost certainly want the first one. Either way, you'll get the same inclusive, non-prescriptive, method-neutral, and (above all) outcome-centric language that has become our hallmark. It's not your typical assessment!

Edition

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

  1. Original edition: the full-sized template – 43 prompts at the latest count – structured by value (transparency, balance, collaboration, etc)
  2. Mini edition: like the original edition, but only 18 prompts (3 per value)
  3. Pathway edition: with minor variations the same prompts of the original edition, structured not by value but by the steps of Reverse STATIK
  4. Mini pathway edition: an 18-prompt version of the above
  5. Featureban edition: the mini edition, re-purposed (see the Featureban home page)

Partners (and their clients) have the full range of templates available to them. The free trial gives access to the mini and mini pathway editions only.

Surveys are not generally conducted using pathway or mini pathway editions. They come into play when it's time to create a transformation map (chapter 3).

Language

As shown in the screenshot, all of these combinations are available in English (EN), and most of them in French (FR) and German (DE) also. The original and mini editions are also available in Spanish (ES), Hebrew (HE), Italian (IT), Dutch (NL), and Russian (RU).
