-The (SOQ: Situational Outlook Questionnaire) is the method to assess Creative Climate, that is the blend of perceptions which are the team drivers to change and productivity. The SOQ (Situational Outlook Questionnaire) is the tool which allows to measure climate and position individuals, teams, and organizations along the Stagnation-Change Continuum in accordance with the nine strategic dimensions. The SOQ has been validated into Italian and is used by Decathlon Consulting under specific licence in a variety of business and organizational domains, always offering powerful insights on team dynamics and change priorities.

* We have a very long history of collaboartion with the Occupational Research Centre (KAI Centre), directed by M.J. Kirton. Guido Prato Previde has carried out the Italian research with the validation of the KAI (Kirton Adaption-Innovation Inventory), the scientific tool which defines cognitive differebnces when problem solving and decision making (Adaptors and Innovators). KAI is today a unique research based tool which enables us to get an individual and team psychological profile on which develop preference, coping behavior and team integration. The management of style differences can be essential to make the best use of competence... 

We have been using the KAI largely for many years to train individuals and teams to develop their creative potential and manage others attitudes when leading transformations.
