E. Workshop Content :

Using a highly participative approach, the workshop is designed to answer – in depth – the following commonly asked questions:
• Why conduct a survey in the first place? We know what our employees think.
• Where do I begin? What can I realistically hope to achieve from a survey? What are the key things I will need to help me deliver the goals I set?
• What makes a good survey?
• How do I establish the ‘real’ issues to survey?
• What makes a good a statement?
• What makes a good questionnaire?
• How big can my survey be? How many statements can I include?
• What is the best medium to use – paper, email of the web?
• What response rate can I expect? Is there a way to effectively forecast the response? What can I do to encourage people to participate in the survey?
• How long should I plan on the survey process taking?
• What resources do I need?
• How do I cope with all of the data the survey will generate?
Stage II : Implementing
• How do I analyze the results in order to provide my organization with meaningful feedback?
• How can I use the information to identify and discuss problems without finger-pointing or personal attribution of blame?
• How do I avoid the common “attribution biases” that many managers/consultants bring to the table?
• How do I “unlock” the chain of causality connecting the issues we identify?
• Having identified all of the issues how do I determine the “right” things to work on?
• Is there a method of tasking teams and individuals in a way that results in higher performance and increased accountability?
• What’s the best way to select people to be on a team?
