About the Assessment
Many companies want to know how they benchmark against the best practices described in “Building Tech“. They’d like to assess their tech organizations or individual teams and receive personalized recommendations on how they can diminish or resolve certain problems they are facing.
The online assessment tool TOPStrengthener® allows any company to easily get an overall assessment of its tech organization, as well as a detailed assessment of its individual areas. The tool provides not only overall and detailed assessments but, based on the input that you provide while doing the assessment, also valuable recommendations on how you can uplift your tech organization and its individual areas. These can serve as a base for your engineering roadmap.
You can apply the assessment not only to whole tech organizations but also to individual teams and individual tech units. It is a very convenient way for newly hired engineering leaders to quickly assess the tech organization of their new companies and get detailed information for potential areas of improvement. The fact that the tool provides personalized assessment and recommendations for your particular tech team means that you can also re-take it after you have implemented the improvement plan to assess the impact. This is a very easy and convenient way to make sure you are building a great and successful tech organization!
