This is a chart you can use to quickly gauge the state of your project / idea / organisation.

It is basic: if you don’t have something in place (those mentioned along the top – e.g. compelling case for doing the initiative) then it leads to whatever is listed on the right side, corresponding to the red cross.

For example, if you’re feeling a sense of frustration, consider there may not be enough capability of the people working on your initiative; so training of current people and other new people may be required.

I used this when I was working at Deloitte (and prior) in change management, often using it as the basis to develop survey questions to gauge large groups. It was originally developed by the University of NSW

It may provide you insight you can use to change what’s missing.

Happy days to you,




Thanks to Ross Hill for inspiring me to share this.
