Quick Assessments

Process Strategy Group in collaboration with Stevens Group, Inc. has developed 2 FREE Quick Assessments to help organizations quickly determine where they are on their process journey.  Our Free Quick Assessments are:
  • Web-based,
  • User friendly,
  • Cost-effective,
  • Easy to administer,
  • Founded upon significant research
  • Provides you with a feedback report 
  • And even provides direction on how to close some of the biggest gaps
We have provided the table below for you to determine which Quick Assessment is right for you.  Use the Objective section to see if you have some or most of the conditions listed, this will indicate which assessment you should select.  Of course you can always take both assessments to get 2 different perspectives of your process efforts. 

Caution: Our Free Quick Assessments are designed to give feedback based on an individual’s answers to the questions; this may not reflect how the rest of the organization views your efforts.  We recommend starting with the Free Quick Assessment and then enlist 15-20 individuals from a cross-section of the organization to take our Targeted Assessment.
