I have different scores when I consider different stakeholders I work with. Is this normal?
Yes - it is likely your relationship and experience will be different across different stakeholders, so we recommend answering the questions with one individual or stakeholder group to remain consistent. The results present as a guide.
If I score in the high range range, does this mean I am an excellent business partner?
A high score indicates you are maximising the probability of being an excellent business partner, but this self-assessment can't take into account the perspective of the stakeholders you serve, now 'how' you go about engaging with others.
I'm new to my role, so some questions are difficult to answer. What should I do?
Make the best judgment you can relative to where you are now. It is a guide that will change as the environment around you changes.
How long should this take to complete?
For most people, about 10 minutes.
Will I receive an emailed version of the scores and report?
Yes, however if it does not arrive in your Inbox shortly after completing we recommend checking your Junk Folder.
How have the questions been designed?
Using capabilities described for best practice business partnership across progressive organisations we have explored, typical business partnering experiences have been selected that relate to each category. The scores are a guide only and should not be an absolute measure of your business partnership performance.
On completing this assessment, you will receive a report that provides feedback relative to the six key behaviours we observe in excellent business partners;
Stakeholder Centric: Putting stakeholders (partners) at the centre of business activities and the design of output to suit their needs,
Deliver Results: The capacity to manage resources effective to achieve results, including overcoming any potential obstacles that arise in delivery.
Building & Maintaining Partnerships: Partnering with others to drive successful outcomes; building and maintaining effective relationships
Coach, Facilitate, Consult: Positively challenge the thinking of others by coaching, facilitating or exploring perspectives on issues and opportunities to achieve best outcomes for key stakeholders (partners).
Accountable: Takes action to ensure outcomes are met; holding self and others to account in the 'value chain' relied on for results.
Collaborative: Working jointly with others towards a common goal. Sharing knowledge and experiences with others and leveraging knowledge to achieve objectives. Also, displaying openness to new ideas and opportunities to raise performance.
