Data collection and analysis is key to ensuring a successful change program, and CCG Analytics has developed sophisticated change assessment tools. We seek data that is statistically relevant for the organisation concerned, able to accurately define the needs and nuances of demographic, functional and geographic areas of an organisation, and that is able to accurately identify internal and external risks to a change program.
CCG Analytics uses a variety of tools to collect data on organisations, including interviews, focus groups and workshops (like our Leading Change product). We also use The Barrett Values Centre Corporate Transformation Tools (“CTT”), which is an online tool for collecting statistically relevant data in large organisations.
CCG is accredited as a Level 2 Senior Consultant by The Barrett Values Centre in the United States. The Barrett tools are outstanding in the context of change consulting. They are able to provide good data within the specific context of large-scale change engagements; they are cost effective; they are able to be delivered online as well as on paper (sometimes this is required in factory or industrial environments); and they can be customised to take various client needs and contexts into account.
The purpose of the Barrett tools is to provide detailed organisational analysis so that we can accurately measure and manage organisational culture, operational efficiency and build leadership and change capability. An outcome of using these powerful tools is a set of guidelines that can support leaders in building high-performance, values-driven cultures, that attract and retain talented people and increase staff engagement.
CTT surveys provide accurate diagnostic data to support the planning and management of:
- organisational change initiatives
- culture transformation programs
- employee engagement surveys and interventions
- diversity engagements
- talent management programs
- leadership development initiatives
- pre- and post-merger integration work
CTT has been used by a number of South African corporations (including Nedbank, Coca-Cola Shanduka Beverages, The Clicks Group, Exxaro, and Business Connexion) and the South African government as well as Australian companies and the state (including ANZ, CommInsure, ASIC, and National Archives of Australia) . It is very well received and highly regarded as an accurate and value adding tool.
“The whole system approach provided by The Barrett Values Centre tools has provided our organisation with an extraordinarily powerful practical framework for guiding and driving transformation in every aspect of our organisation.”
Tom Boardman, former CEO, The Nedbank Group
