Organization Creative Quotient (OCQ)

Know your organizational creative quotient (OCQ)

Over 80% of business over the next 5 years will come from ideas that don’t yet exist. And if your company doesn’t learn to unleash its creative potential fast, you’ll likely be left in the innovation dust.

The Combustion OCQ (Organizational Creativity Quotient) is a team or organization-wide assessment tool that reveals your people’s creative mindset, abilities and desires and holds up a mirror to the current status of your organization's creative potential. The assessment unearths your creative ‘ignition’ and ‘extinguishing’ points and more importantly, shows you how to capitalize on strengths and turn weaknesses around. Assessing your OCQ is the critical first step to becoming the kick-ass creativity powered organization you’ve always dreamed of.

The Combustion OCQ is completely anonymous to ensure honest results, is scalable, and comes complete with a comprehensive report from our expert team
