Strategy is a team sport, not a solo venture. Complex challenges require complex solutions and complex solutions simply don’t rest within the mind or experiences of an individual. Groups, organizations, and even groups of organizations have a much better chance of designing the complex solutions needed to address complex challenges. We call this kind of diversity strategic diversity.
In partnership with our colleagues at Human Insight, Ltd. we can measure strategic diversity at the individual, team, and organization level using an assessment tool called the AEM-Cube ™. Individuals and teams charged with growth transformation challenges as well as those working on strategy design and execution can benefit greatly from a Strategic Diversity Assessment: organizational and political leaders, and teams, management and executive teams, teams involved with mergers and acquisitions, boards of directors, and teams of public officials designing or executing complex collaborations. Many organizations find an enterprise-wide assessment helpful.
Get started by completing your own assessment and attending a free webinar to help you understand the results.
Click the link below to go to the registration portal, and choose the “Self-Assessment” option (you could also choose the Feedback Assessment, which is an additional one-on-one session to debrief your results). When you’re asked for a session code, use “DiversityNov17”. After you register, you’ll receive two emails: one immediately from Purdue Extended Campus confirming your registration (and serving as your receipt), and one from the Purdue Agile Strategy Lab, which will include instructions for accessing the online instrument and the webinars (please allow a day or two for us to set you up in the system).
