Organization Guidance System (OGS)

Prioritize human capability investments that drive business results.

RBL's Organization Guidance System (OGS) utilizes 30 years of proprietary research and leading, predictive technology to shift the approach to human capability investments to a prescriptive, results-based, and closely measured science. OGS helps you answer the question: Which human capability investments have the greatest impact on targeted business outcomes?  

Business leaders have struggled to directly connect investments in their people to business outcomes

Every business invests in people and organization activities to improve talent, leadership, organization capabilities, and strategic HR with the hope that it will have an impact on business outcomes. Unfortunately, when we first make these investments, we do not know how the investments will impact business outcomes right away. As a result, these investments are often cut first when business conditions become more challenging.

Because we haven’t had a way to measure the impact of our investments on business outcomes, we do the next best thing. We benchmark to compare our activities to other companies (e.g., turnover ratios, development spending, etc.). The benchmarks encourage us to fix our weaknesses or improve our strengths so that we can be more like the companies who are best in each activity, yet we do not know whether improving those activities improves our business results or not.

The alternative is to ask a different question: which people investments will most impact specific business outcomes (financial, employee, customer, strategic, CSR)? Our work to answer this new question has led us to build a platform that links investments directly to business outcomes and provides a solution for measuring impact.

Investment Guidance for Targeted Business Outcomes

OGS brings together decades of empirical research and cutting-edge, predictive analytic technology to shift from measuring what we are currently doing (benchmarking) to what we should be doing (guidance).

OGS enables clients to specify business outcomes that are most critical (financial, customer, employee, strategic, and CSR). Then, combining data from your organization and our proprietary algorithm, the Organization Guidance System pinpoints exactly which human capital investments make the most sense to meet the desired outcomes. Whether you are looking at talent, leadership, organizational capability, or strategic HR investments, OGS identifies specific initiatives that will deliver the most critical business outcomes.
