Assessments & Surveys

Operational Assessment

An Operational Assessment is an efficient way to identify your company's strengths and weaknesses through a comprehensive review of your operations. The assessment gathers information about many different areas and aspects of your company, and then pinpoints areas for improvement and opportunities to capitalize on. Most important, the assessment allows you to "see the big picture" and then put priorities in perspective. With an Operational Assessment, you use time and money cost-effectively as you plan for and implement changes in your company.

The TDO Operational Assessment examines critical business and manufacturing processes, company policies, structure, culture, and key metrics and performances through careful examination of the following organizational areas:

  • General Management
  • Production
  • Human Resources
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Information Systems
  • Engineering & R&D – innovation and new product development
  • Quality
  • Finance & Accounting
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Environmental sustainability of products and processes

Our team has broad experience in manufacturing, marketing, management, HR, new product development, and finance which brings a fresh, unbiased perspective to the business that will help identify areas where there are opportunities to grow and to improve quality, productivity, profitability, and overall competitiveness.

HBDI Whole Brain® Thinking

 The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI®) is a thinking style assessment tool built on Whole Brain® Thinking, a holistic and complete model for making all types of decisions.  Easier to grasp and apply than other assessment tools, this powerful psychometric assessment defines and describes the way an individual thinks and processes information, and provides insight into why the person values certain types of information over others. With that knowledge, individuals can learn how to “flex” into other ways of thinking to adapt to others – how they think, what they value, and how they communicate, to bridge the gap quickly.

HBDI is used in organizations across all industries to enable individuals to be more productive and effective in their careers, resolve conflicts, be more persuasive, and to better understand themselves and others.  For organizations as a whole, the HBDI tool enables leadership to understand the collective thinking preferences of all or a subset of team members and make a determined effort to seek out perspectives that may be lacking internally. Over 75% of Fortune 500 companies have used HBDI in the last 5 years, and 93% of the top 100.

Participants will take the instrument on-line before attending a workshop where they will learn from TDO’s HBDI® Certified Practitioner about the different thinking styles and how to interpret their own results. 


Employee Surveys

Employee Engagement Surveys

Create a happier and more productive workplace by understanding employee satisfaction. Use employee surveys to check in with employees about their satisfaction with their roles and responsibilities, the work environment, and their experiences with management. Find out what mix of benefits matters most to them, and what skills they wish to acquire as they develop their careers. Employee engagement surveys make it easy to learn more about your employees. Measuring employee engagement with regular polls helps you improve satisfaction, productivity, and retention. The TDO Employee Satisfaction Surveys are based on the standards and guidelines defined by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and are conducted using SurveyMonkey.
