When ordering the online version of the questionnaire, you will also receive a link to a webpage with your group’s profile. Group profiles (based on the link answered by your group) will be automatically generated. The profile is dynamic and will allways be updated without refreshing the page. You will also see how many participants have already completed the questionnaire. (Useful both during the workshop and in a pre-scoring situation!). It also provides information about how many participants of each color there are in the group (great help when creating one-color groups!) This feature is suitable both for PC (e.g. projector) and your mobile device (phone/iPad etc.)
1. The Hexagon view presents distribution of the individual participants in a two-dimensional space – a hexagon. The participants are represented as dots and their location is a function of scores on all three colours. The actual scores can be visible when you hover the pointer above a particular dot.
The hexagon view can illustrate clusters as well as proximity and distance between the participants. Who is furthest apart? Large distances can be a good starting point for talking about different experiences and perspectives on the colors. This is relevant for the personal development and conversations between the participants later.
The points when the three lines meet is the groups “centre of gravity” – the group's average. The normative average – 50 Red, 50 Blue and 50 Green – is in the actual centre of the figure.
2. The Statistics view includes a chart with group’s averaged scores and the norm. In addition, the exact averages and standard deviations for Red, Blue and Green are presented below.
The statistics includes a chart with the group's average score and norm. This provides an opportunity to discuss how the group as a whole is different from what is most common. You can discuss what you need to be aware of and what measures you can then implement. eg: "What are our strengths and challenges given our group profile in connection with organizational change?", "How can we compensate for the colors with low scores?
3. The standard deviation view provides an opportunity to discuss how to deal with large or small variation in the different colors.
Too little variation invites increased focus on alternative perspectives. Too much variety requires greater care / respect in handling different perspectives. This can be deepened with an awareness of the purpose of different forms of conversation; dialogue (understanding), discussion (truth) and debate (value choice).
Group profiles can be a useful point of departure for reflections and exercises focusing on a team, department or an organization as a whole: “What are our strengths and challenges given our group’s profile in the context of organizational change?”, “How can we compensate for the colour-preferences we score very low on?”, etc.
Some iformation that is not visible in the averaged Statistics-view, becomes evident in the Hexagon: the position of individual scores in the context of the entire group. Thus, it can be used to discuss the “distance” and “closeness” between the participants; as well as to uncover “clusters”.
