How AGH's organizational assessment & development service can help your organization

AGH's consultants have supported leaders in a wide variety of industries to assess their organizational and cultural strengths and weaknesses, and to help prepare them for the future. Clarifying organizational relationships and positional roles and responsibilities helps drive the performance and accountability required for significant change.

AGH’s Entrepreneurial Transformation System (ETS) is a simple process that creates the framework and cadence for your organization to address all three areas in the right sequence, pulling together proven tools and processes from a variety of the world’s leading minds. Participants leave with a clear, shared vision amongst all employees, getting things done with a regular rhythm, and having the right people in the right seats with accountability to drive performance.

Frequently asked questions

What organizational changes do you typically recommend?

Each organization is different, so there is no “typical.” We always start with an organizational assessment first to understand the unique situation, then create recommendations from there. Much like you wouldn’t want a doctor prescribing medicine until she has done a physical, we don’t want to make any recommendations until we understand the organization’s needs.

How do you assess an organization?

This can be done in a number of ways, but usually includes some combination of interviews, surveys, and document review.

Are there any prerequisites for doing organizational assessment and development?

There don’t have to be, but ideally it would be in combination with a strategic plan so that the organizational structure can be aligned with the future direction of the company.
