1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation initially came to life when…
Partnering with Queensland University of Technology developed the I Am assessment tool based on observations of employee behaviour surrounding organisational change. The multidimensional tool profiles across 3 dimensions and 9 elements.
2. WHAT & HOW
The purpose of this innovation is to…
…change although certain, breeds uncertainty. AdaptiQ Minds breaks the barrier of change through its I Am Profile, measuring the likely resistance to change and identify those that will require the most support. Speeding up change programs and reduces resistance.
It does this by…
…the current pace of change is unprecedented and workplaces are not keeping up; the I Am tool provides evidence-based data of ones tolerance of ambiguity via self-assessment and 360 feedback. This data enables individuals and businesses to build a tolerance for ambiguity via a targeted learning program to ensure change does not blindside them and they can prosper and thrive.
3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS
This innovation improves on what came before because…
Providing a path to progress regardless of uncertainty and ambiguity increases the likelihood of success and relevance in the workplace. While change readiness assessment tools exist, they presume knowledge of the change event, that it is clear and will adhere to a plan; this is rarely the reality. The I Am tool measures tolerance of ambiguity rather than planned change.
Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…
Research shows that a greater acceptance of ambiguity and responsiveness to uncertainty is critical to an organisation’s success. Employees with curious mindsets toward ambiguity provide benefits including:
- Improved Problem Solving
- Increased Creativity
- Purposeful Decision Making
- Higher Leadership and Job Performance
4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
In the past, this problem was solved by…
