Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT)


Think about the last time you worked in an organisation where there was excitement in the air; where you felt the organisation cared about your growth and development; where everything possible was done to enhance the customer experience; and where everyone was pulling in the same direction. Most certainly, that was a high performing organisation.



The Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT) are one of the most detailed and comprehensive cultural diagnostics and values assessment instruments commercially available, to leaders, consultants, and coaches.

The Cultural Transformation Tools are designed to support leaders in building high-performance, values-driven cultures that attract and keep talented people and increase staff engagement.

Our surveys provide the input you need to plan and manage your change initiatives, your cultural transformation programmes, your diversity interventions, your talent management and leadership development initiatives, and your customer feedback. They make the intangibles tangible and provide lead indicators for measuring individual and collective performance.

The Barrett Model does not set out a fixed pattern of culture effectiveness, instead it provides a far more open framework which creates a dialogue for unique circumstances, rather than fitting into a pre-determined model of good.

Individuals can access the CTT values assessments by completing the Part 1 CTT two-day certification training. The Part 2 course, a three-day training, is designed to gives practitioners the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the Cultural Transformation Tools, and explores practical applications for working with the results of the values assessments.

Both the CTT Part 1 and Part 2 courses are available in multiple languages throughout the world and in a combined training course. There is also the option of attending the training in an online Virtual Training format.

The CTT survey instruments have been used to map the values of all types of organisations, as well as nations, communities and schools.
