The Diagnostics module is comprised of 10 pages and has 2 components:
- The Diagnostic (1 page)
- The Diagnostic results (9 pages)
In this article we are covering item 2, the results.
To better understand this article, and the diagnostic itself we first need to take a step back and explain another concept briefly, the 7 questions. You can read more about the 7 questions but to summarise...
The diagnostic provides the insights needed to answer the 7 questions. So, in 25 to 30 minutes a team can take the diagnostic and then review the results to gain insight to then answer the 7 questions and interpret the data to develop a combat plan for the upcoming quarter, half or year.
And now back to the program...
How to use the diagnostic module
In the top horizontal tile you can choose which diagnostic data to view and post messages on the selected diagnostic's channel. The page loads with the most recently completed diagnostic data.
The next set of tiles contains data relating to the selected diagnostic. They display the total score and a skills and systems score. Then you can read the question that relates to the function. And then there's a window into the mindset of your business, or your team's approach, called your Growth Mindset. Click MORE to view the full growth mindset definition.
Then comes the Leadership Curve!
The leadership curve displays a total score, and skills and systems score for the function. The triangle on the curve represents the total score, the circle represents your skills score and the square represents your systems score. You can isolate these if needed by checking and unchecking the corresponding checkboxes.
Along the top and bottom of the curve are the activities that relate to the function of business. By rolling your mouse over an activity the definition of the activity is displayed. The activities along the top of the curve relate to human skills such as Research & Market Fit. These activities are undertaken by people. The activities along the bottom of the curve relate to system capabilities such as Web & Mobile CMS. These activities relate to technology and systems implemented in your organisation.
Each activity along the leadership curve has a colour associated with it. The colour represents the level of clarity, or score achieved from the diagnostic. To quickly identify the activities that need focus, or that you are strong in you can check and uncheck the Activity Score checkboxes.
Once you know which activities scored lower you can create a goal in backlog using quick actions to address the activity.
Wowsers... that's a lot of information. Time to get a drink of something, and begin interpreting the data to identify activities for improvement and create some backlogged goals to start planning how to shift the needle!
