The Check for Effectiveness can be performed by an Effectiveness Matrix, which…

  • …Is a tool easy to understand and easy to use
  • …Can be used by (quoting the ISO 26000 Scope) „all types of organizations, regardless of
    their size and location“
  • …Does not need any advisors or consultants external to the organization
  • …Is a good instrument for preparing a dialogue with stakeholders and others

If you want to learn more about a practical example having used this matrix
(a 30 persons software producing company) please have a look at this file. Another practical example is here (a 70 persons trade association).

Feel free to use this set of slides for your own purposes including integrating some of them into your own presentations.

The authors would be happy to get your feedback on their practical use, and on your proposals for further improvements, changes or amendments.
