People often behave differently in teams and organizations than you would expect based on their individual preferences and character. They adapt to the nature of the team culture. Often this leads to effective forms of cooperation, but also with some regularity will lead to a team dynamic that is not effective; what’s there might not come out. Even perfectly composed teams can get stuck in a communal pattern that doesn’t work well and brings up negative feelings. To get at the heart of this sort of pattern is vital for those leading teams.

With RealDrives you can measure the drives of teams and individuals. In RealDrives results you can read not only the team pattern but also how you can best guide the team and what the dangers and blindspots are. With the individual drive profiles you see how people are put together, how they adjust their behaviour to their environment and what judgements or feelings they have about their environment. The difference between people become concrete and manageable. Read more on www.realdrives.com

Many projects and programs apply de-facto standards for project management: PRINCE2 and MSP in the EU and PMBOK, in the USA. These “standards” allow you to manage a project in a logical way and are undoubtedly effective, but have their limitations, especially when used to manage people changing their behavior or ways of working. Most common causes of project failure according to multiple research studies are people related: lack of ownership, no engagement of stakeholders and unrealistic expectations.

Projects often go wrong because people are different and see things differently. People naturally behave in positive ways; they do what they can to push things forward. However, they will always act on the basis of their own point of view, and situations can become difficult if those views do not match. As a result you will often find misunderstandings, communication problems or cultural differences that may easily block progress.

SAY is a method combined with an online measurement tool which provides information on project critical success factors and insight in stakeholder mental states, thereby making stakeholders more manageable and enabling the right next step to keep on track. SAY can be described best as the first X-ray machine for the soft side of programs, projects and change processes, providing hard facts on soft aspects.

Understanding the interaction between culture, behaviour and business ethics is clearly high on the corporate agenda for business leaders, senior accountants and regulators alike. The largely regulation and rules-based response to the financial crisis has somewhat missed the main problem. Many people with whom we engaged expressed despair with what they see as a general tendency to apply quick fixes and ‘snake oil’ to deep, complicated and often poorly understood behavioural issues.

RealControls is the first method enabling organisations to chart cultural risks and ineffective behaviour within organisations in a logic and systematic way. RealControls can be described as an X-ray machine for the soft side of organisations. In addition to providing insight into risks, RealControls charts cultural differences and balances within the organisation. And substantiates topics such as alignment and engagement with hard objective figures, thereby detecting a number of issues requiring management attention. Read more on www.realcontrols.nl

"Vandaag de dag is het onderwijs (nog) overwegend consumptief, docent- en curriculumgestuurd in klassen- en roosterverband. Dat moet en dat gaat veranderen. Meer maatwerk en betere matching is de toekomst en wij bieden het instrumentarium waarmee je dat als onderwijsinstelling, als docent en als leerling of student in de vingers krijgt."

Het Dutch Didactics model is ontstaan vanuit het besef dat mindsets, drijfveren en voorkeuren een substantiële rol spelen bij de sociale- en academische integratie van leerlingen en studenten en dat diezelfde mindsets, drijfveren en voorkeuren mede de aantrekkelijkheid van een vak of studie en grotendeels de motivatie van mensen bepalen.

Dutch Didactics biedt een kleurentaal om verschillen tussen leerlingen, studenten, leerkrachten en docenten te duiden, zowel in de verschillen onderling als ook richting voorkeuren voor lesstof, onderwijsmethodieken, leermethoden, mindsets en toekomstperspectieven. Met Dutch Didactisch worden begrippen als passendheid en maatwerk van een meetbaar kader voorzien. Begrippen als afbreukrisico en slagingskans krijgen een persoonlijke kleuring, waardoor je ze bespreekbaar en veranderbaar maakt. Lees verder op de DutchDidactics website

Personal preference and emotional click play a key role, in addition to substantive approach and applied method, in the effect of programs and treatments. What if we could use emotional clicks to improve the effect (outcome) of programs and treatments?
  • Happier client; the client feels listened to, empathically understood and better helped
  • Happier professional; applied method is more likely to catch on, less stress & communicative noise
  • Better society; more caring society at the same or lower costs, because we arrange things better and more efficient
Dutch Shift is a platform to match personal preferences to approach and style of programs and treatments in order to maximize impact & positive effects.

Three practical fields of application for Dutch Shift
  1. Dutch Shift as a market place for addressing "levensvragen"
  2. Dutch Shift as a benchmark and yardstick for reintegration agencies
  3. Dutch Shift as tool in (mental) health care to align treatment with individual client preferences

The top 2 fail factors of startup ventures are 'not having the right team' and 'having a proposition customers don't want'. There is a growing awareness among startup accelerators, investors and corporate innovators that the quality of a team in a venture is as vital to success as the quality of the proposition.

But how do you assess the quality of the team and the proposition in relation to a venture's success? That is easier said than done. So, it's not surprising that investors, stakeholders, accelerators, coaches and mentors often rely on their gut feelings to make those decisions. Venture Metrix is designed to get you from gut feeling to know how. Venture Metrix combines psychological insights with business sense and provides clear data to make data-driven decisions.
