Olivia I look forward to reading more about your results. I was very interested in the research done some years back about EQ vs. IQ it was very interesting to see the effects on a person's career and overall success.

Yes Maryam, I totally agree. This is my first venture into primary research related to these topics. I do have a couple of questions that attempt to get at the level of effective communication within the organization. I'm not seeing a lot of correlation with the performance variables yet. But it looks like I could see some interesting relationships if I get a few more respondents. Thanks for the great question!

Olivia it sounds like very interesting research have you done research on the relationship between human intelligence and communication?  It could add another variable to the success of BI projects from the perspective of evolved communication skills and levels of human intelligence.

Hi Olivia. You might be interested in the approach Jerry Allyne, VP for Strategic Planning & Analysis and Marketing & Business Development at Boeing Commercial Airplanes, uses to guide his analytics team in their work -- as it's all about finding that balance between the science and the art of analytics. He spoke at the INFORMS analytics conference earlier this week. Here's my post: The Art of Analytics & Decision Making at Boeing

Hi Olivia. I agree with Noreen -- your idea for developing a measure for organizational IQ sounds like an interesting one, and I would imagine that a lot of companies would be keen on finding out how they do measure up -- especially if you can indeed show correlations with performance. This type of assessment would be particular good for companies going through transitions or redefining their missions, etc. I'm looking forward to hearing more about this as your research evolves.

Great question, Noreen! I'm looking at factors like one's level of self-awareness, comfort with change, thinking style (tactical vs strategic), the level of trust within the organization, employee satisfaction, tolerance for risk, leadership style (authoritarian vs empowerment), etc.. It will be based on the respondent's perception. But I think it will still tell a story and perhaps even show correlations with company performance.

That's such an interesting idea. What additional components would it measure, theoretically?

As far as IQ measuring Human Intelligence at the corporate level, I think the standard IQ test falls short. I'm hoping to develop an Organizational IQ with data collected from my survey.
