Think about the last time you worked in an organisation where there was excitement in the air; where you felt the organisation cared about your growth and development; where everything possible was done to enhance the customer experience; and where everyone was pulling in the same direction. Almost certainly, that was a high performing organisation.
The purpose of CTT is to support leaders in building high-performance, values-driven cultures that attract and keep talented people and increase staff engagement.
CTT provides leaders, consultants, and coaches with one of the most detailed and comprehensive cultural diagnostics and values assessment instruments commercially available.
CTT surveys provide the input you need to plan and manage your change initiatives, your cultural transformation programmes, your diversity interventions, your talent management and leadership development initiatives, and your customer feedback. They make the intangibles tangible and provide lead indicators for measuring individual and collective performance.
If you want to use CTT in your organisation, you can either contact a local accredited CTT consultant or coach, or train one of your own in-house change agents. To find your nearest CTT accredited consultant go to Offices or call +1 828 252 5550.
Individuals can access the CTT values assessments by completing the Part 1 CTT two-day certification training. The Part 2 course, a three-day training, is designed to gives practitioners the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the Cultural Transformation Tools, and explores practical applications for working with the results of the values assessments. Both the CTT Part 1 and Part 2 courses are available in multiple languages throughout the world. There is also the option of attending the training in an online eLearning format.
The CTT survey instruments have been used to map the values of all types of organisations, as well as nations, communities and schools.

There are two models that are used to analyse the data collected by the CTT survey instruments – the Seven Levels of Consciousness Model, also known as the Barrett Model, and the Business Needs Scorecard (BNS).
The Barrett Model is an adaptation and extension of Maslows model of the hierarchy of human needs. An overview of the model can be found at the following link, The Barrett Model (PDF). For details on the derivation of the model go to From Maslow to Barrett (PDF). The Business Needs Scorecard (BNS) is an adaptation of the Balanced Scorecard developed by Kaplan and Norton.
