Feedback that Fuels Success
From day one, 3D Group’s mission has been to help our clients win in the marketplace by leveraging behavioral science to assess & develop talent.
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
We keep our promises.
We admit our mistakes.
We seek truth.
We trust others.
We do no harm.
The organization is the client.
We avoid conflicts of interest.
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.
A Few Words from our Clients…
“Thank you for your wonderful service, commitment to quality and your flexibility!”
“You guys ROCK!”
“In the Aerospace Industry it's sometimes difficult, but nonetheless important, to find someone to partner with that is flexible and responsive to our needs. 3D Group fits the bill perfectly.”
“3D Group stands out for achieving a rare balance of strong interpersonal skills and insights with equally strong technical and consulting tool capabilities. The instruments developed by 3D Group reflect a "real-world" utility as they are concise and in typical business language - with rigor and technical underpinnings under the hood.”
“I chose to use the 3D Group's Leadership Navigator 360 degree assessments with my clients for three primary reasons: their product is easy to administer, the information provided is easy to understand, from both the client and the coach's perspective, their customer service and support is superb.”
