Act organic first
Holistic organizational development
Work with OQM®, a worldwide unique toolbox for holistic organizational development - threefold evaluated.
OQM® has supported organizations in over 70 countries in more than 20 years of research. We have created over 80,000 analysis profiles, identifying quality characteristics for sustainable growth that are valid for companies, non-profit organizations, associations as well as churches.
Don't waste any more resources.
Instead, become an impetus for how to sustain an organization's mission.
There are many analysis tools and consulting approaches. As different as they are, they are similar in one respect: They devour resources and have hardly any sustainable effects.
A lot of idealism, time and money go into laborious processes from which measures are derived, which are little implemented and whose success is hardly measured.
All of this does nothing to help you fulfill your mission. Focus your energy and resources on growth principles that will make you fit as an organization, structurally, humanly and spiritually, to do what you set out to do sustainably.
Developing quality on the basis of the OQM® profile
In times of digital and agile transformation, OQM®️ sees itself as a navigator for the healthy further development of your organization.
We provide the “OQM®️ Profile,” a comprehensive assessment tool that evaluates the organization in three dimensions: structural, human, and spiritual, to identify weaknesses and show potential for improvement.
You can get a first impression of OQM through our Quick Check, OQM Pulse, which you can request here free of charge.
Eight quality features as a key factor
At OQM, eight quality characteristics are the key factor for sustainable and exceptional growth in church, nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
They are examined with a survey and compared to results from other organizations. The following eight areas are examined in detail:
Biblical principles (Organic) combined with management methods (Quality) guide the right management decisions (Management).
Depending on the type of organization, these areas can be described differently, but the content of the principles behind them remains unchanged.
Developing effect through the organic principles of OQM®.
OQM® measures and develops the quality and health of an organization based on principles originally derived from cybernetics, systems theory and ecology.
Interconnectedness, Multiplication, Sustainability, Functionality, Energy Transformation and Symbiosis have been implemented very successfully in a large number of organizations and companies over the last 20 years, and their effectiveness has been scientifically proven. We call these six principles “organic principles” because they take an organization seriously in its dimension as an organism.
