Participation is free. Your own company’s results will be shared with you at no charge. The full results and detailed comparisons of your organization with respect to others will be compiled and offered for purchase. However, the results and comparisons across all participants will be shared and included at no charge with your attendance to the Huthwaite ummit on Mackinac Islansd in August 13-15, 2013

How it works:
The survey will be sent to you and filled out by you for your organization. This is a great opportunity to get a small team together to discuss your ratings. Discuss each question and fill it out together.
The results of your assessment will be reviewed and by lean development experts Bart Huthwaite and Timothy Schipper.
The survey will also include a 30 minute teleconference interview with either Bart or Tim to review your answers and further discuss the ratings and responses.
Once all participants have completed their assessment, the results will be compiled. The name and information of your organization will only be seen within your company, and your identity will be anonymous to the other participants. The survey results will merely indicate from which industry the results were compiled. (Bart and Tim will sign an IDA or non-disclosure agreement upon request). We will only share your information with your permission.

Sign-up soon, the assessment will only be run during the month of May and June. So start today.
