We use a practical model:

When we have KNOWLEDGE it leads to UNDERSTANDING which leads to more effective ACTION.


This means that before we do anything we need to KNOW where we are (as an organization) and what is happening.With KNOWLEDGE it is easier to UNDERSTAND what is going on and why, so any ACTION proposed or undertaken is more effective.

A Diagnosis process

Our organizational diagnostic tools produce short, effective graphical based outputs that are easy to understand and engage managers and employees alike. They provide a catalyst for change in an easily understood way.

A tool is only an object until it is in the hands of a person who understands HOW to get the most out, and importantly how to use it appropriately. Then the tool becomes a lever for change and enables growth and development - be it a process or an idea. This is why we recommend the BIR is used by trained individuals.

The BIR™ has been in constant improvement and development for over eight years based upon research, experience and use.  The success of the product is in its approach.  We use a change management method of doing things which means things happen as a result of the process.
