About the Situational Outlook Questionnaire® (SOQ)

The SOQ is a climate assessment tool. The multi-method measure utilizes both quantitative and qualitative methods to yield powerful results. It assesses the climate and context for change within an organization using a nine dimension model.

Over 50 years of extensive research, development, and testing occurred to make the SOQ what it is today. The SOQ is a reliable, valid and useful measure built upon a solid foundation. It is based on the early works of Dr. Göran Ekvall.

The power behind the SOQ is that it is designed to make real, lasting change happen. The measure has been utilized by over 100 organizations, many of which are Fortune 500 companies.
