Maximizing Your Organizational IQ

  • Ruud Weijermars


Assessing your organizational or Corporate IQ to discover your deficiencies and acting to remedy these in order to enhance your business performance is intelligent. Designing an IQ assessment tool is likely to be met with criticism. But it will be extremely helpful for monitoring growth or decline in your Corporate IQ. In fact, there is a great need for an objective standard in a ready template or scorecard that uses a consistent set of logic and parameters to express and compare Corporate IQs. The IQ Scorecard introduced in this Executive Guide enables competitive comparisons and can be utilized to support the advice of business analysts. Practical guidelines for sizing up your Organizational Intelligence are given here.
