What are Categories?

Our recommended surveys are based on research by AskYourTeam and our research partners, including the University of Waikato's Institute of Business Research. The surveys are designed to measure the most relevant areas that determine overall success for an organisation.

AskYourTeam surveys are constructed using Categories (previously known as Organisation Success Factors).

Each category is underpinned by a set of questions. Survey participants rate these questions using an Agree-Disagree scale. These ratings translate to a corresponding score (from 0-100% in increments of 20%). The scores are averaged across the organisation enabling a clear understanding of both what is working well in the organisation and also highlighting opportunities for improvement.

The higher the percentage score, the better the organisation is perceived to be performing.

How do I analyse categories?
