Human Insight Tools

Human Insight's tools help organisations to optimally align talent and strategy to guide organisational growth in the right direction. Our tools focus on mapping where people optimally align in executing strategy and contribute to growth. We specifically look at various components such as strategic and cognitive diversity within organisations. The data that our tools provide gives real-time insight into what is happening at different layers within the organisation. These different layers are: 

  1. Organisational level (cultural aspects and organisational structures);
  2. Business unit level (collaborative force within and between business units covering the value chain);
  3. Team level;
  4. Individual level.

Gerenomeerde internationale businessschools

Our tools are used by renowned international business schools such as London Business School, Nyenrode Business University and Purdue University. In collaboration with these business schools, we have developed many best practices to provide organisations, management teams, entrepreneurs, managers and employees with tools that benefit the organisation and team performance. These best practices, in combination with our tools, help people to reflect on their performance, provide feedback to colleagues and map team dynamics. Our tools, in combination with working methods, are particularly powerful material for developing people.

Why are the Human Insight tools so unique?

Our tools are unique in that it links the natural contribution of people to the strategy of an organisation. Other psychometric tests mainly look at how people communicate with each other or how certain behaviour is expressed, but this says nothing about performance. With our tools, we can make a direct link to the performance of people, teams and the organisation as a whole. 

Strategic insights for the benefit of the organisation and team performance

Every organisation grows and to guide this growth in the right direction you need the right people to manage it. With our tools, we offer you and the people within your company the handles to give substance to the most important asset of your company in a scientific way: the right people in the right place.

Organisations don't build great things, people do!

AEM-Cube®: natural strategic diversity

The AEM-Cube is a globally implemented assessment tool that helps individuals and teams to achieve their strategic goals by mapping individuals' natural contributions to growth and change. It gives insight into the optimal contribution of an individual or team to performance. The AEM-Cube also measures and predicts the dynamics in a team or organisation by visualising their cognitive and strategic diversity. This valuable information can help to enable sustainable growth and performance.

ACT-Cube®: sustainable value chains

The ACT-Cube offers a variation on the AEM-Cube by zooming out further. Whereas the starting point of the AEM-Cube is the individual, the ACT-Cube analyses the dynamics between teams, business units or departments. It shows how a group of people contribute to growth and change in an organisation, where the groups strategic focus lies, and how consistently it acts to deliver performance.

Qi Index: culture and psychological safety

The Qi Index is developed by David Lewis (London Business School) and Alison Reynolds (Ashridge Executive Education) to make organisations more able to adapt to change successfully. Their research found that the quality of interaction in a team or organisation is vital in delivering its strategy. The Qi Index analyses an organisational culture by measuring the perceived cognitive diversity and psychological safety in the current and desired environment. It helps organisations to gain more value from future threats and opportunities.

RPA-Cube: the right result areas for the right roles

The RPA-Cube is a variant of the AEM-Cube and maps the result areas of a role. It is used to tackle questions around recruitment, promotions and staff turnover. It can also help to describe new or existing role optimally. The RPA-Cube offers insights for HR and management to optimise strategic staff planning, possible causes of burn-outs, more effective promotions of employees and efficient recruitment and selection processes.

Growth-Curve: the relay race of progress

The Growth-Curve tool provides insight into which growth phase an organisation, product or service is in at any given time. Each phase in the Growth-Curve from exploration to optimisation brings different benefits and challenges. By means of the right strategic and cognitive diversity in your team and organisation you can take the next step on the Growth-Curve. The tool contributes to ecological thinking in organisations because it is based on the natural cycle from birth, through maturity to renewal. The Growth-Curve is used to initiate a dialogue between organisations about the connection between people and strategy.

Governance-Cube: zooming in on the directorate

De Governance-Cube is ontwikkeld in samenwerking met Governance in Balans. Deze tool brengt het gedrag van een bepaalde Raad van Commissarissen of Raad van Toezicht als geheel in kaart. Daarmee geeft het inzicht in de kwaliteit van interactie binnen de raad en tussen de raad en het bestuur. De consistentie van het gedrag wordt hierbij inzichtelijk gemaakt. Dit is een belangrijke randvoorwaarde voor vertrouwen in de raad en voor de mate waarin de raad toegevoegde waarde kan leveren. Sluiten de woorden en de daden van de raad op elkaar aan? En is daarmee een goed fundament gelegd voor een effectieve governance?
