SPGR analyses

Over several decades there has been developed SPGR analyses that with the help of sophisticated algorithms have the capability to illuminate a myriad of phenomena that occur in groups.
Primarily there are two ways to gather data for SPGR analyses.

Regardless of the data, level or algorithm, the analyses are comparable. Almost all analyses are drawn over the same template and what shows up as a vector in one analysis will show up equivalently in another analysis. In this manner one may for example see directly how executed management compares with the value foundation of the organization or how the culture of one unit differ from another.

Despite the multitude of analysis that are availble, we see that our consultants primarily use two types of analyses; Field analysis and Agility analysis. To simplify the administration of surveys there is a simplified "One-Click" standard reports for SPGR Team and SPGR 360+ with a combination of these analyses. SPGR Team is for analysing team dynamics and SPGR 360+ is for coaching individuals.

|| The most used SPGR analyses

Field analysis

The SPGR Field analysis maps out relations between members of the group and give a visual image of the group dynamic, roles and role descriptions, as well as the distribution of power and influence. The field analysis is also used to identify differences in members' perception of the group sosial reality (mental models).

Agility analysis

The SPGR Agility analysis identifies which group functions/culture that the behaviour primarily supports, the frequency of behavior, degree of intensity and areas for development along eight vectors. The agility analysis is also used to identify similarities and differences between ones own and others perception. Also other objects (not persons) can be the basis for the agility analysis, which for instance is relevant for triangulation.

SPGR Vector analysis

The Vector analysis portraits SPGR data in a profile based on twelve vectors. These twelve vectors are the same as those used during direct observation and are therefore often used in combination with observational data. Since the presentation appears simpler than in the Agility profile, the Vector diagram is often used instead when the data is communicated without personal feedback, such as for instance in reports after a culture analysis.

SPGR Spiral analysis

The Spiral analysis presents the SPGR scores given for all 34 parts of the SPGR scale. The scores are plotted over a stylized picture of the "SPGR norm" as a foundation for comparison with the profile under evaluation. The color codes illustrate which parts influence which behaviour. The Spiral analysis give a degree of detail down to parts that can be compared to the "SPGR norm". By using this you achieve variation in tool without leaving the "language" and model you are basing the training on, as well as get an immediate reference to the various behavioural components.

Polarization analysis

All conflict in groups have their origin in polairzation between parts of the group (sub-groups) or individuals (satellittes), and the group. Polarization can be caused by disagreement in work matters or different values between members in a group. The Polarization analysis describes polarization within a group by identifying sub-groups and satellittes (individuals), what type of polarization it is, as well as how severe the polarization is.

SPGR Humres leader and culture analysis

Facing large reorganization process or during aquisitions and mergers it turns out that the largest challenges come from organizational matters. SPGR Humres is a methodoly and analysis of organizational aspects of significance for change in organizations. SPGR Humres is developed to act a pedagogical teach tool to create understanding and anchoring for an upcoming change. SPGR Humres helps facilitate anchoring using specific meaures for improvement regarding strategic focal areas, a valid culture analysis and an examination of management and leader(s).

|| Other SPGR analyses

Typology analysis:

an analysis of group structure based on SPGR topology. The Field analysis is the starting point.

Blindspot analysis:

an analysis of elements a group does not "see" or perceives as taboo to talk about. Based on SPGR raw data.

Stereotype analysis:

identifies the shared and locked perceptions of "others" that a group has. Based on Field and Agility analysis.

Cohesion analysis:

identifies the primary type of cohesion of the group. Based on Field analysis and Polarization analysis.

Functional balance:

portraits the balance between the different group functions. Based on SGPR raw data.

Inter-group Field analysis:

identifies different opinions and perceptions of own and other groups within an organization, for instance for work on organizational development or conflict resolution between groups. Based on the Field analysis.

Communication matrix:

different representations of communication patterns over time and addressing messages during the group work. Basis is SPGR observational data.
