Strategy Health Check Quiz

To complete this Health Check, please read each of the statements and select the number in the column which most closely reflects your reaction to each proposition.

Please make a response to all the statements. Add up your total number, per section, and compare it with the results table at the end of each section.

The whole process should take no longer than 15 minutes and should be completed on an individual basis. Please focus on the experience with your present organization.

Once done, you can discuss your findings with your colleagues who have also completed the health check. The value of this tool is in the discussion and resulting action plan, not the scores per se. Focus on any real disparity in scoring and any consistently low scores. These are the areas that for you may yield the biggest return on discussion and can illuminate the way to raising the bar on performance in your organization.

If you would like to discuss your results, any particular aspects of the health check questionnaire or how we can help you or your team, please contact us.

Answer the questions below honestly using this scale:

5 = Strongly Agree
4 = Agree
3 = Neutral
2 = Disagree
1 = Strongly Disagree

Please select the number which describes your view of each statement.
