Who Is It For?

The TOPStrengthener® assessment is aimed at helping tech leaders to improve their engineering teams and build successful tech organizations. It can be applied to individual teams, tech units, and whole tech organizations.

The TOPStrengthener® assessment can be applied to any type of company, whatever its type of business or domain. It can be applied to large corporations as well as startups. Of course, many of the recommendations will depend on factors like the size of your company. Because of that, at the start of the assessment, you’ll need to provide brief information about your company and tech organization.

Below are some typical-use cases for taking the TOPStrengthener® assessment:

  • The VP of Engineering or CTO of a startup wants to assess her tech organization, identify gaps, and get valuable recommendations for improvement. 
  • The VP of Engineering or CTO of a large company wants to assess its individual tech units, so she asks each individual tech leader of a unit to make the assessment. 
  • An Engineering Director wants to assess the tech unit that he manages. 
  • A newly hired tech leader wants to quickly and efficiently assess the tech organization that he will manage and get valuable insights and recommendations for its improvement. 
  • The CEO of a company identifies tech excellence as a strategic focus of the company and asks the VP of engineering to take the Top Strengthener assessment to evaluate the tech organization of the company.
