I understand pmNERDS facilitate self-assessments to help teams quickly focus on performance improvement initiatives. What information can you share to help my team determine if this is something we want to do? Why does pmNERDS do this for free?

This Self-Assessment is based on an article published by the Harvard Business Review, by Morten T. Habsen and Julian Birkinshaw on the Innovation Value Chain. I talked with Julian Birkinshaw about some of my thoughts while a Fellow at RYMA, and he gave me permission to use it in our consultancy. This is a great tool for use in constraint analysis, and providing focus for both value stream mapping and performance improvement scoping.

I have been using this tool for consulting sense it's publication in June 2007. Most of these principles can be traced back to concepts introduced by Michael E Porter's Competitive Advantage: Creating and Sustaining Superior Performance. I believe originally published in 1985.

The HBR article is included below for your convenience.

The Self-Assessment asks teams a set of about 20 questions, in which the team responds to with a 1, 2, or 3. 1 meaning "false". 2 meaning "Somewhat true" and 3 meaning "True". The results indicate whether the team feels that they are either Ideation poor, Conversion Poor, or Diffusion Poor. With this jump start and the use of TOC, the focus of performance improvement initiatives can be reduced, which enables continuous performance improvement.

pmNERDS includes this as a free service in our sales process to help clients know more about what they need before they buy it.
