The Forge Assessment Hub
You want your people to work together in the best way possible? Bingo! But how does one achieve this? Join the club of thousands of managers, leaders and entrepreneurs who don’t really know how to measure collaboration. Luckily, we do!
Based on your results, our behavioral scientists provide you with personalized and actionable advice that gives you a clear idea of your current collaboration strengths and weaknesses and how to improve it. So don’t panic, we have your back.
How good do you collaborate with each other? Let us take a look at how your team collaborates and where we can improve!
You might think that in a team 1 + 1 = 3. I’m sorry to break it to you, but research shows that when it comes to collaboration 1 + 1 = 0,3. So how’s your team doing on collaboration? Let us diagnose how your team collaborates and where we can improve!
To assess your team, we work with a validated 5-point checklist. A checklist that allows you to rate your team, department or organisation on each point. We did not invent these five points ourselves. Nope. The same factors are used to measure collaboration in scientific research.
We only need each participant to answer our 38 questions. It takes about 7 minutes to find out your collaboration profile! With that data, we provide you with clear answers to the following 5 crucial points:
Does everyone in your team or organisation pursue a clear, common goal?
Do they all share their expertise with each other, listen to the expertise of others and dare to say what they think?
Do they help each other when new things need to be tried out?
Do they improve each other in their work to achieve high quality standards?
How often do they interact with each other?

More than a Buzzword
We leave culture up to the artists in theaters. Rather, we focus on human behavior and how people work together. For that, we disentangle your culture into different layers of values, norms and habits.
People find different things important when it comes to high-quality collaboration. Do they prefer cohesiveness, or is flexibility very important to them? Our assessments indicate what people value when it comes to working together.

Uncover the shared cultural habits and customs that people share in your organization. Gain insights into how unique cultural practices determine the quality of working together.

Company Culture Profile

Don’t panic. Behavioral scientists have long been developing accurate ways to measure culture. The Forge uses these validated scales to assess your culture! To do so, we only need each employee to answer 24 questions on our user-friendly online platform. This means that it takes just 5 minutes to find out which culture prevails in your organization! After that, we'll summarize your results all in a nice report with concrete advice, and an analysis of potential subcultures in your organization.
However, we don't stop there! After the report, our team of behavioral experts examines how the prevailing culture determines the collaboration of your employees. Using techniques from decades of scientific research, we then design a cultural change trajectory with only one destination: high-quality collaboration!
Wondering how to get people with diverse personalities to work together well? Worry no more! Our personality assessments provide you with an evidence-based understanding of the underlying principles of collaboration. You'll learn something about yourself, your colleagues and how each personality can contribute to high-quality collaboration!
