Unparalleled insight into your internal operations

Gain a holistic, comprehensive view of your organisation’s execution strengths and opportunities for improvement, across people, process and profit.

The Productivity Diagnostic makes this hard work easy, benchmarking your internal operations and identifying the most critical performance opportunities to drive up your productivity and profit.

Leveraging a suite of proprietary diagnostic tools and frameworks, you’ll obtain a 360 degree view of your organisation’s productivity profile, and unprecedented clarity into how to continue to forge your path to execution excellence.

People

Profit

The Productivity Diagnostic (PD) combines the data from three productivity analyses to deliver a high-resolution snapshot of your organisation in motion. Through the application of analytical rigour across your people, processes, and profit, Kognitive delivers the actionable insights and guidance you need to deploy your resources where they can have the largest positive impact on performance and productivity.

People

Your people are your most important asset. Leveraging the Productivity Pulse and employee interviews, we delve into your culture, decoding beliefs and behaviours across the seven domains of Kognitive’s Performance Pyramid.

2

Process

The efficacy of your tools and processes greatly affect your organisation’s ability to execute. This analysis delves beneath the numbers and opinions by conducting a first hand review of your tools and processes, giving you an objective, data-backed view.

3

Profit

Your financial statements reveal the ultimate effectiveness of your strategy and execution. By conducting a productivity trend analysis we join the dots between your people, process and profit, giving you unprecedented clarity into your internal operations.

Combined these analysis deliver a holistic view of your organisation’s execution and unprecedented clarity about how to improve your productivity, processes and profits.

Frequently Asked Questions.

What is included in the Productivity Diagnostic?

What is included in the Productivity Diagnostic?

The Productivity Diagnostic consists of three assessments, each with a number of key deliverables.

  1. People Assessment – This includes a Productivity Pulse survey and staff interviews as required.
  2. Process Assessment – This includes an objective review of key productivity indicators in each of the seven performance domains against the criteria of Kognitive’s Productivity Maturity Framework.
  3. Financial Assessment – This includes Kognitive’s Productivity Ratio Assessment which analyses the organisation’s financial statements and other KPIs to identify productivity trends.

Once these three assessments are complete, we conduct a detailed multivariate analysis of all data to identify the most important areas to focus on. Results are summarised in an executive report and presented in a strategy workshop, where we co-develop and prioritise improvement initiatives to accelerate your path to execution excellence.

How does the Productivity Diagnostic differ from the Productivity Health Check or the Productivity Pulse?

How does the Productivity Diagnostic differ from the Productivity Health Check or the Productivity Pulse?

Although all three tools use Kognitive's Performance Pyramid, they offer an increasingly more thorough view into your internal operations. The Productivity Diagnostic is the highest resolution assessment tool, followed by the Productivity Pulse and then the Productivity Health Check.

More specifically, the The Productivity Diagnostic is the most comprehensive assessment. It reviews culture, process and financial performance to gain a 360 view of the effectiveness of your organisation's internal operations. he Productivity Pulse consists of a survey which is completed by all staff and a workshop and report which deliver key findings. It takes 2–4 weeks to complete and it provides a snapshot into an organisation’s culture and productivity at any given moment in time. The Productivity Health Check is the lowest resolution view which focuses on speed, cost-effectiveness and privacy. It consists of a survey completed by one business leader and a report which highlights key findings. Results are delivered within four hours and it provides an excellent broad brush stroke assessment.

How does the Productivity Diagnostic differ from the Workflow Assessments?

How does the Productivity Diagnostic differ from the Workflow Assessments?

Think of the Workflow Assessments as slicing deep into one area (or workflow) explored in the Productivity Diagnostic. If you know you would like to improve a specific workflow or are facing challenges in a particular area, then the Workflow Assessments will be the best tool. If you are looking for a comprehensive organisational wide view of your operational performance then the Productivity Diagnostic will be the best tool. Book a discovery call if you’d like to discuss further.

How long does it take to complete a Productivity Diagnostic?

How long does it take to complete a Productivity Diagnostic?

On average it takes 4–6 weeks to complete the Productivity Diagnostic. Shorter turnaround times are available under some circumstances. If you require a faster turnaround time book a discovery call and we’ll confirm the shortest possible turnaround time currently available.

Does the Productivity Diagnostic provide recommendations on how we can improve our approach to execution?

Does the Productivity Diagnostic provide recommendations on how we can improve our approach to execution?

In our experience, firm recommendations are often ineffective because they don’t take into consideration your context, constraints and organisational complexity. Instead of providing rigid recommendations, we find it more effective to provide you with improvement initiatives for consideration. In the debrief workshop we then help you evaluate these options and evolve the most relevant strategies together to meet your specific needs.

Do you provide support to help us communicate the Productivity Diagnostic to the team?
