Management Consulting Mansis provides top quality professional general management consulting and personal coaching to the heads of organizations and their senior executives, in the areas of human resource management and resolving employee performance problems. Using the unique 'Mansis Index of Organizational Change' survey tool, Mansis consultants can also measure an organizations inherent ability to implement change and recommend action plans for increasing the organizations success at implementing change and other initiatives.

The Mansis Index Of Organizational Change Purpose of the Mansis Index of Organizational Change* >>The Mansis Index of Organizational Change* is designed specifically to give senior management an assessment of the probable success of planned change efforts in their organizations. Results gathered using this Index give you unfiltered information about important organizational characteristics and opinions which are related to your organization's receptivity and ability to implement change successfully. >>Information collected with this Index can be used to develop specific action plans not only for increasing your organization's willingness to accept necessary change, but also for improving the organization's ability to implement the changes you want. >>As well, the Mansis Index of Organizational Change* can help validate management's perception of the need for organizational change and focus organizational change activity on organizational needs and not on symptoms. >>This Index has resulted from over ten years field experimentation by the Mansis Development Corporation with organizations from all industries. This research is also based upon studies of organizational behavior undertaken at major research institutions across North America and it reflects the most current, leading-edge knowledge about organizational change and management. >>Specific questions in the Index were developed from numerous sources for measuring the many factors related to organizational change, as well as from intensive research by Mansis.
