Organization Guidance System (OGS)

Invest in human capital initiatives that will most directly impact business results.

The Organization Guidance System (OGS) utilizes 30 years of RBL research and CorpU’s technological expertise to shift the approach to human capital investments to a prescriptive, result-oriented, and closely measured science. Let us help you answer the question: Which human capital investments have the greatest impact on targeted business outcomes?    

Business leaders have not had a way to connect investments in their people directly to business outcomes

Every business invests in people and organization activities to improve talent, leadership, organization capabilities and HR with the hope that it will have an impact on business outcomes. Unfortunately, because we don’t know for sure the investments will impact business outcomes, 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 spend, etc.). The benchmarks encourage us to fix our weaknesses or improve on our strengths so that we can be more like the companies who are best in each activity. But still, we don’t know if improving activities to be more like others improves our business results.

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

Guidance on where to Invest for targeted business outcomes

RBL and CorpU have combined RBL’s world-class, research-based IP with CorpU’s technological expertise to create the Organization Guidance System (OGS). This platform helps clients shift from measuring what is happening now (benchmarking) to what we should be doing in the future (guidance).

The Organization Guidance System (OGS) allows 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 talent, leadership, organizational capabilities, and HR, the Organization Guidance System identifies specific initiatives that will deliver the most critical business outcomes. OGS then monitors impact and provides ongoing guidance about where to focus next for improvement.

Accelerate business outcomes by knowing where to prioritize investments

The Organization Guidance System helps organizations focus people and organization initiatives that will deliver targeted business results.

The implementation of the Organization Guidance System is a powerful next step for organizations to maximize business outcomes. The combined resources of The RBL Group and CorpU, along with our industry partners, fundamentally transforms how companies around the world are able to create value for their stakeholders. The stage has been set. Now is the time to move to an Organization Guidance System that offers empirical prescriptions about which investments in people are necessary in order to deliver targeted business outcomes.
