Vector Organisational Scan - Analysing your challenges

  1. 1. Organisational Scan “Vector has developed a range of world leading diagnostic tools over the last 20 years and is able to deploy these in over 140 countries around the world, either online or by face to face interviews as appropriate” Key Benefits:  Provides the CEO/Top Management with an efficient and comprehensive diagnostic scan of the organisation at all levels  Identifies areas of potential greatest leverage for increasing organisational effectiveness as desired  Indicates priorities for action to move/transform the organisation, which focuses and facilitates planning  Provides an assessment of the organisation's readiness for change, and the adequacy of the organisation's leadership and management to effect that change  and, perhaps most significantly Enables the alignment of the organisation's strategy, culture and support systems to the business reality confronting it. The Organisational Scan is a key insight that informs the organisation of the array of challenges and tasks that lie ahead. This is usually our first step in working with our client's companies, formally or informally as is appropriate to the situation. It is a thorough diagnosis of your organisation's component systems that allows us to examine the external environment, organisational strategy, culture, infrastructure and stakeholder expectations. The Organisational Scan is a systematic and proven process for examining a company's external business environment and the company's conditions, processes and outputs at the organisational, people and work level. The Organisational Scan gathers current data on the organisational situation as perceived by its functions and people, for use in decision-making by senior management. It clarifies organisational intent and direction, and captures information about the 'real organisation's' alignment with that direction - its values and beliefs (espoused and actual) as well as factors that help and factors that hinder desired performance. It also assesses the effectiveness of the organisation's infrastructure - systems, policies, procedures and processes - in supporting the organisation's strategy. Specific recommendations resulting from the Organisational Scan are based on systematic and systemic diagnosis - not best guess, or organisational tradition or personal preference or what some vendor may have on the shelf that has worked elsewhere. The arena of possible interventions is wide, and the selection of appropriate interventions and their optimum implementation sequence is vital. For further information please visit us at

The external scan focuses more heavily on constituencies and factors outside the organisation that significantly impact upon it (customers, suppliers, alliances, and competitors).
