Company Timeline

Creative Metrics, Inc. opens in Colorado Springs. We created client centric custom people measurement assessments, technology, training, and coaching solutions.

Launch Conflict Lens — first ever assessment to measure behaviors used in actual conflicts

Headquarters move to Minneapolis • Gained Citi as largest global client.  Launched Minerva24 platform that allowed for adaptability to deploy leadership 360 insights, performance management, succession management, scorecards, and dozens of custom talent assessments.

Lockheed, Pfizer, NCR, Jarden Amgen, Weyerhaeuser become clients • Established DMM – measuring diversity impact on business goals and TM3 – auditing the maturity of talent management systems

Company name changes to Work Effects • Strategic shift from large custom talent metrics to measuring and aligning leadership and culture

Launched: Research Study with 100’s of top executives, academic review of 40 culture models, study of culture metrics predictability, and strategy effectiveness. 

Aha Moment! Evaluating the data from research study, we discovered the need to measure culture on a Good-to-Good scale to connect strategy and culture.  This means we measure both culture “health” and “alignment” to drive performance

100’s of interviews, focus groups, and dozens of pilots to design Purposeful Culture transformation model! Continue improving assessment technology to identify the key people that really drive success or failure in the organization

Health and Culture Alignment Assessments developed to measure and drive target cultures needed to execute strategy • Implement Strategy Culture with CEOs across the nation
