Audits & Assessments
Audits & Assessments
Audits are primarily used to gather 'factual' data about a situation which can then be objectively analysed and used to:
- To turn opinions into facts and create consensus
- Design interventions to address specific issues
- Re-run at a later date to assess the effectiveness of the intervention
The audits offered here have been developed by us to understand the specific situation we are faced with in a client organisation and to provide real-time data as the basis for agreeing actions. They are listed in three groups for ease of search; a synopsis of the content can be viewed by putting the mouse over the title.
We hope you will find what you are looking for. If not, this is just a sample so please contact us and we will try to help you.

Motivation Survey – Individual
This survey is designed to help managers to understand the factors motivating people at work and that these factors change with circumstances. What is important to an individual today will be less important in different circumstances. Thus all job need to offer a range of ‘motivating factors’ if people are to find them satisfying in the medium term.
The survey can be used with work groups to develop understanding or at a departmental or organisational level where managers would like to assess job satisfaction.
