MI is a global, not for profit, professional body; for the development of effective, whole system leadership and management within corporate, investment, and regulatory environments. MI provides a unique, evidence-based approach to organizational health and the creation of an integrated, long-term societal value measure called Total Stakeholder Value.
Compelling evidence produced by MI shows that organisations who set out to create value for society are able to maximise value for all stakeholders when all their human systems are aligned to achieve this outcome. Such value creation is also sustainable over the very long-term. As demonstrated by MI’s highly rated exemplars such as Toyota and Handelsbanken, the most mature organisations, reflected in a high TSV, are able to both generate the best financial performance and maximise their contribution to society for many decades.
MI uses a unique question set (the ‘OM30’) as a diagnostic instrument to provide its comparative assessment of organisational health, which is focused on governance, corporate culture and the management of human capital systems. Each question within the OM30 instrument is designed to show causal links to improvement in TSV that can be generated by individual organizations. Using external, publicly available information, OM30 provides ratings for OMINDEX: a corporate index using a comparative scale mirroring credit rating from D to AAA, and is increasingly used by the investment community and regulatory bodies for investment, board level engagement and risk analysis. OM30 is also used by company boards and senior executives as a baseline measure to assess corporate culture and to provide a strategic route map for material value improvement and better risk management.
MI’s work is multi-disciplinary, using expertise from an array of backgrounds such accounting, finance, economic, legal, human capital and general management. MI uses whole system analysis to gain a holistic perspective of each organisation, aiming to adopt the same level of evidence-based decision making and use of the best available standards as found within the medical profession for human health. Organisational Maturity is now taught as part of MBA programs and provides students with much deeper insight into the nature of an organisation going beyond the constraints and limitations of conventional financial and economic theory.
