  3. 3. Since Frederick Taylor, companies have been trying to cope with increasing business complexity through increased command and control. Agile methodologies are a step forward because they promote simplification over enhanced control, by fostering self-managed teams. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 3
  4. 4. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 The perfect agile team, self-organizing and autonomous, cannot be designed, but it can be grown. The process starts with selecting team members sharing the same cause. The Q7 Tool by Collectiver helps create effective self-managed teams across all levels of your agile organization. 4
  5. 5. The Q7 Culture Compass will: • Find your North Star – understand your real internal drivers: your Basic Human Values. • Discover the drivers determining your team performance. • Assess the alignment and help grow a high-performance team. • Determine the best culture and leadership style for your team within the business environment.

  6. 6. The Q7 tool is based on years of research and practical experience in the borderland area between organizational strategy and culture, the “hard” and the “soft” of the business. Shalom Schwartz’s Basic Human Values Theory inspired the Q7 creation, with several models and methodologies created by the leading scholars in the fields of psychology, leadership, and organizational behavior contributing to the tool’s development.

  7. 7. The Q7 test takes 1 minute. Just open the Q7 Form, read the instruction attentively – and answer the 7 A/B-type questions. Your Star will appear on the on-line Values Map, and you’ll receive a copy of the Map by email. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 7
  8. 8. Your Star location on the map marks the center of your dominant values and indicates where your profile falls along the axes of openness to change and human interaction. The tool can also size up your potential to work with Elon Musk, if you care to consider that… Well, not that Elon cares, either. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 8
  9. 9. Q7 Team Assessment measures the level of your team convergence. Clustered stars, indicating high convergence, are a sign of a high- potential teams, while cluster locations suggest their prevailing culture styles. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 9
  10. 10. As each Star is a resultant vector, graphing individual value profiles gives an insight into the team’s preferred culture style(s). Another indicator of the team’s potential is its convergence ratio calculated by the Q7 tool. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 10
  11. 11. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 11 Sample Case 1 This newly formed senior team has three clusters with distinctly different cultures (the 6-o’clock one-man cluster is the CEO). The overall convergence of the team is 27%, not bad for a start, but the convergence is much higher within the clusters. That is likely to turn the clusters into non-cooperative factions.
  12. 12. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 12 Sample Case 2 This team demonstrated high convergence but was not cooperative and efficient: the dominant values of the team (skewed towards Power and Achievement) were not aligned with the declared corporate values. Three of the four team members clustered around 9 o’clock have soon left the organization and started their own company.
  13. 13. Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 13 Sample Case 3 This assessment was done for a team of 20 people. The low convergence of 15% is not a surprise for a team that big: highly effective teams are usually under “two-pizza” size. In addition, this company does not have a shared company mission, i.e. there is no “North Star” that the team members are expected to align with.
  14. 14. Q7 will help you initiate an open conversation that will create clarity of Purpose and generate engagement and trust in your team. Q7 will also help you recognize your personal drivers and clearly define your role and position within your teams (the one you lead and the one you are a member of). Q7 will not solve all your organizational or personal problems, but it is a good start. Q7 Culture Compass: Get yours now: Q7: Culture Compass Collectiver Inc., © 2018 14 GO TO Q7
