Fearless Organization Scan (FOS) Certification
A Way to Measure Team Effectiveness
Harvard Business School Professor, Amy C. Edmondson, PhD, discovered psychological safety when researching hospital teams in the 1990s. She found it was the number one factor that differentiated high performing teams. Since then, her ongoing research and that of other social scientists around the world has shown that psychological safety is the most critical underlying factor in determining the success of any team. Furthermore, research at Harvard University demonstrates that teams and organizations with higher levels of psychological safety perform better on almost any metric or KPI in comparison to teams and organizations that have low psychological safety.
Birth of the FOS
In 2019 Amy joined forces with Infocaster CEO Sander Hoeken to make it easy to measure psychological safety in teams. This collaboration resulted in the Fearless Organization Scan which houses Amy’s 7 question scale called the Psychological Safety Index (PSI). The report that is generated gives the team’s overall PSI against a benchmark of teams across the world. It also shows team members perceptions of psychological safety across 4 dimensions: open conversation, willingness to help, diversity and inclusion, and attitude to risk and failure.
Become a Fearless Practitioner
The Fearless Organization Scan (FOS) provides a quick and reliable way to measure team performance. It gives results at the individual, team and across whole systems. This course will teach you how to administer, interpret and use the scan with teams to to help them reach high performance. You will also learn how to use it to map psychological safety across systems resulting in a heat map along with an organizational dashboard that allows you to monitor psychological safety over time and calculate return on investment.
