Together, these best practices touch on important aspects of your organization’s Business Systems, Information Technology (IT) & Facilities concerns.

Improve Your Operational Competence

There are 60 Best Practice Statements in each of the six OpX360® modules. In this People & Organizational Development module, these statements are grouped into five sets of related Best Practice statements called Key Elements and each individual statement is categorized into one of three competence levels.

Those competence levels are:

  • Level 1 – Core operational practices necessary to perform effectively
  • Level 2 – Sophisticated practices that enhance overall performance
  • Level 3 – Leading edge practices that enable an organization to deliver the highest level of operational performance

Any of the OpX360® assessments can be taken individually or together, depending on the needs of your organization. In 60 minutes or less, you can know your operational competence levels in any of the areas and what you need to do next.

"We’ve paid business consultants many thousands of dollars in recent years. For a fraction of the cost, OpX360® provided us with more focused feedback and recommendations, along with actionable steps for improvement, than our consultants have."

- Jim McKee, CPA and Nonprofit Leader
