The Best Leaders Drive Transformation

Competitive advantage is fleeting. Winning companies thrive by reducing their time to value—that is, by building and changing momentum quicker than their competitors do. Our multiyear research effort has identified the methods that top organizations use to improve themselves and their teams, leaders, and strategies. The key? Learning to mobilize, execute, and transform with agility.

Heidrick & Struggles has more than 60 years’ experience building strong leadership teams. Our leadership experts operate from principal business centers in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific. We work with our clients to build their organizations, teams, and individual leaders to reach peak performance.

Acceleration Quotient Self-Assessment

The Acceleration Quotient self-assessment tool allows users to quickly gauge their organization's level of acceleration in four critical areas: strategy, organizations, teams, and individual leaders. The interactive tool allows you to see where your organization stands in comparison with leading companies' ability to mobilize, execute, and transform with agility. This survey is based on our more comprehensive assessment tools: the Strategy Accelerator Questionnaire (SAQ), the Organization Accelerator Questionnaire (OAQ), the Team Accelerator Questionnaire (TAQ), and the Leadership Accelerator Questionnaire (LAQ).

The assessment tool will help you:

Determine what is the level of acceleration in your strategy, organizations, teams, or individual leaders

Gain an understanding of the reasons for your level of acceleration

Consider what you can do to fill the gap
