  • Fully Customized Multi-Rater Surveys

    VDS has extensive experience developing customized multi-rater (360 degree) survey instruments. We offer several different types of question and reporting styles including means-based and ipsative arrays, with or without importance ratings. We offer open-ended, verbatim style questions as well as traditional frequency and extent style questions. Our full-color graphic and tabular reports provide clear and concise feedback.

     

    Clients who need assistance developing their own survey instruments can use the VDS proprietary Question Bank, a database that houses questions used in previous surveys, or they can draw on the experience of one or more of the consulting firms that have strategic alliances with VDS.

     

    VDS also offers a wide range of pre-specified instruments appropriate for a variety of contexts.

     

  • The Vector Professional Manager Development Survey (PMDS)

    The Vector PMDS has been used effectively by the Vector Group, for many years in projects with companies of all sizes seeking to develop their most valuable resources: their people. VDS supports the use of PMDS with a fully developed course curriculum that clients can use alone or in conjunction with their own program material and rate workbooks. This ready-to-use multi-rater survey is designed generally enough to be highly effective in nearly all circumstances, yet focused enough to measure accurately.

  • Leadership Compass

    The Leadership Compass Inventory, developed with Dr. Michael Fenlon, Associate Dean and Professor at Columbia Business School, is a 65-item, multi-rater (360-degree) instrument that serves as an assessment and action-planning tool for executives and managers. A distinctive feature of this instrument is its comprehensive design, providing insight about overall effectiveness and detailed feedback data on areas ranging from key organizational leadership practices to the interpersonal and personal competencies that reflect emotional intelligence (EQ).

  • Employee Satisfaction Surveys

    Internal customers are an important constituency for a company’s success. Through the use of instruments like the Team Climate Survey and the Term Performance Survey, VDS has helped many clients assess employee satisfaction.

    Team Climate Survey

    VDS offers its clients the CDR International Team Climate Survey, an instrument that diagnoses the critical elements of a winning team, focusing on the areas of Direction, Recognition, Involvement, Meaningful Work, Excellence, Trust, Support, and Cross-Organizational Relationships.

     

    Team Performance Survey

    The Team Performance Survey was developed by Saletta Boni, Ph.D. and Michael J. Fenlon, Ph.D., who are both members of the faculty at the Columbia Business School, and has been used very successfully in the Columbia Business School Executive Education program. The Team Performance Survey is a multi-rater survey that evaluates how a team's leader and its members, as well as non-team members, view the team’s organizational environment, purpose, team climate, leadership, and results.

     

  • The Kiefaber Paradigm Preference Survey (KP2)

    The Kiefaber Paradigm Preference Indicator (KP2) was developed by renowned management consultant, Mark Kiefaber, a noted management consultant and Co-Faculty Director of Columbia University’s Senior Executive Program. The Kiefaber Paradigm Preference Indicator is an instrument that reveals one’s own creative problem solving style. It measures the extent to which individuals solve problems inside versus outside an accepted framework and seek to implement problem-solving ideas in either a patient or impatient way. The test not only provides insight into individual preferences, but also provides a basis for understanding that can lead to greater group effectiveness.

ABOUT US

Vector Data Services is a member of VECTOR, an alliance of international consulting firms dedicated to helping organizations successfully achieve change.

 

VECTOR works with clients primarily in the areas of leadership, cultural due diligence, culture change, organizational alignment, and executive team development.

 

VECTOR is comprised of Vector Group, Inc., established in 1986, the Philadelphia-based Vector Data Services, founded in 1997, and the U.K.-based Vector Europe Business Consultants Ltd., organized in 2000.

Vector Data Services targets two primary markets that we call the Retail Market and the Wholesale Market. The retail market is typically comprised of corporate entities that wish to conduct organizational-level surveys of their employees. The most common form of assessment we produce for these clients is a 360-degree feedback report. This style of report effectively captures the perceptions of all of employees’ important constituencies: self, boss, peers, direct reports, and customers. However, we support not only this sophisticated type of survey but also all forms imaginable. VDS provides all levels of service for our corporate clients from active involvement in the survey administration process to report generation and even written analysis.

 

For the wholesale market, Vector Data Services offers a complete one-stop, low-cost, simple to use, web-enabled outsourcing of any and all survey, assessment and data needs. We make it easy for consultants to survey their clients. In fact, we have the ability to private-label all of our services. For instance, it is possible for the consultant’s and/or his client’s logo to appear on the screen when a survey respondent views a given questionnaire. Using the VDS systems, consultancies of all types and sizes may now leverage the tremendous value of surveys of all types to increase the effectiveness of their work for clients and ultimately increase their ROI.
