The Change Diagnostic Index© is the most comprehensive organizational diagnostic I’ve encountered in over 30 years of experience. I highly recommend it to anyone in the ‘throws’ of organizational change and transition.

Your Change Diagnostic Index© tool was easy to use but very informative for us. You have helped us have a baseline as we move with introducing more change at Compassion. We appreciate your support and your insight documented in your executive report.
The Change Diagnostic Index© highlighted valuable information on a recent healthcare client engagement. This data will allow our consulting team to proactively customize the change implementation strategy to respond more effectively to the unique needs of the client.
HR initiatives are often viewed as ‘touchy-feely’ and hard to quantify; however, the Change Diagnostic Index© not only puts a number on an initiative, but also identifies priorities for communication.

Business process reengineering can be a little scary for employees and contractors when their particular job is connected to the business process that’s being ‘reengineered.’ The client organization is better served if the Loss Of Effectiveness can be measured and addressed, so the LOE doesn’t become quite so severe.
The Change Diagnostic Index© provides the quantitative and qualitative data needed to inform a targeted change management strategy. With this information, leaders can have confidence that they are focusing on the right problem areas with their change efforts.
