The Orgametrics® Philosophy
Orgametrics strives to maximize society’s human potential. We believe there’s inherent untapped capabilities in all of us and our organizations by driving more effectiveness and greater alignment with mission, vision and/or strategic plans.
True organizational effectiveness occurs when agreement, connection and alignment to the Mission, Vision and/or strategic plan occurs down and through your organization. It’s demonstrated in actions and behaviors of all involved. Aligned, effective organizations:
- release better products and services more quickly,
- outperform like organizations in key metrics like sales, profit, test scores and customer/citizen satisfaction, and
- fulfill their mission and vision more effectively.
Orgametrics helps your organization become all it can be.
While comprehensive, Orgametrics is flexible enough to provide you with tools and support based on where you are at on your journey. Orgametrics begins with the Orgametrics® Assessment, and your Orgametrics® Score. This Orgametrics Score shows you where alignment can be improved by function, department, leadership, etc. and is the key to the map that sets you off on the right path towards greater organizational effectiveness.
From there, we work with you, through your current initiatives and programs, to place you and your leadership on a different level of effectiveness. We help you not settle for checking items off lists, but discover ways to have more impact with your limited resources. However, if you wish to take the Orgametrics journey on your own, we can provide you a map to use. Whatever path you choose, we are there to support you.
Working greater organizational effectiveness through alignment doesn’t mean much if it can’t be tied back to key metrics. Because we focus on the current strategies and initiatives you are working on, we can tie increased alignment and effectiveness to your own performance measures to see how these efforts impact performance. You’d be hard pressed to be able to do that with employee engagement or satisfaction efforts.
Orgametrics started through the efforts of its CEO, Art Johnson. Through Art’s time with companies such as IBM, US West (CenturyLink) and Medtronic, Art realized, in order to drive real organizational effectiveness, he needed to better align his organization to its Mission, Vision and Strategic Plan. He noticed how intentional and consistent words and actions to align his organizations drove effectiveness and performance to market leading levels.
Art wanted to develop a tool to that could measure how aligned and effective teams were so other organizations could benefit from greater effectiveness. Soon, clients were asking to not just assess their teams, but help them with the improvement process. Because it’s one thing to know where there are issues; it’s another thing altogether to commit to the work to align an organization, drive its effectiveness and tie those efforts to internal performance measure that matter.
Art serves as CEO of Orgametrics and works with clients across the country. Art’s has a long history with large corporations, with leadership stints at IBM, USWest (CenturyLink) and Medtronic. Art has also served as an Adjunct Professor with the Hamline University School of Business teaching their MBA candidates in Strategic Management.
