How OHI works

The OHI score is a leading indicator of your organization’s ability to achieve sustained performance. It measures organizational health based on our proprietary organizational effectiveness outcomes and management practices.


OHI score

Your OHI score compares the overall health of your organization to our database of 1,700+ organizations. It is an accurate predictor of your organization’s future performance potential. Companies with top quartile health deliver on average 3x greater Total Return to Shareholders, over time.


health outcomes

Every organization can be measured against the 9 most critical health outcomes. These outcomes comprise both the “soft” and “hard” elements of an organization’s ecosystem.


management practices

The OHI not only measures where you are now, but helps you determine what to do next. Our management practices help you identify which behaviors matter most for your organizational health journey, and select a recipe for success to pursue them.
