3D GROUP

Feedback that Fuels SuccessSM

 

Our mission: we fuel leadership success with employee feedback. 

Leaders operate in complex environments, so we pursue Best Practical Solutions that balance industry best practices and the needs of your business. We provide expert service, so you can focus on behavior change at the individual and organizational level.

We were founded in 1994 by two psychologists based on the philosophy that organizations and employees could only improve if they had valid, reliable data to support decision making about their people. Hence our original name, Data Driven Decisions, Inc. (the 3 “Ds” in 3D Group).

We’re global thought leaders on 360 Feedback and it’s the core of what we do at 3D Group. Our expert consultants work closely with each client to develop the best practical solution, supporting a wide range of talent management and organizational development initiatives. Our assessment tools are easy-to-use, scientifically valid and designed to drive individual and organizational change.

3D Group Core Values

Feedback: We believe organizational success depends on employees sharing and acting on behavioral feedback from each other that is honest, specific, relevant, and inclusive.

Urgency: We pride ourselves on rapid problem solving, beating deadlines, and quickly responding to client needs.

Teamwork: We coordinate our efforts to seamlessly achieve common goals.

Flexibility: We avoid unnecessary bureaucracy and take a pragmatic approach to creatively solving problems. 

Joy: We find, nurture, and celebrate the joy in what we do.

Expert Service

Our assessment experts manage your project, mastering the details and proactively working to improve results for you, your organization, and your employees. Behind the scenes, seasoned leadership consultants and technologists support all phases of implementation, providing advice and guidance as needed.

Best Practical Solution

Because your organizational priorities don’t always allow assessment projects to go “by the book,” we pursue innovative, flexible implementation strategies that balance industry best practices with practical business needs.
