These two short quizzes will help you understand the methodology used during the first assessment stage of a typical decision effectiveness study which includes (1) assessing the current level of decision effectiveness against our benchmark database of more than a 1000 companies and (2) identifying what is holding the organization back.

In this case there is only one data source - you. In a full-scale study we would typically gather data from a cross section of people within the organization and flesh out the survey data with further interviews or other deep-dive analyses. Still, the two quizzes will give you an indication of how a structured assessment of decision effectiveness might help.

Begin by taking this quick test about how effective your organization is at decisions. There is one question on each of the four elements of decision effectiveness—decision quality, speed, yield (or execution), and effort.

Thinking about the most important strategic and operational decisions you have been involved in at your company over the last three years, choose 1, 2, 3, or 4 for each question as it relates to those critical decisions.
