Scientific research into the support of teams for a target set by their management has shown that in 41% of the cases the teams were aligned in their rejection of the management target. In other words, setting a target doesn't automatically mean that it gets implemented. So, a wise manager will also consider the impact of a target on its support by the respondents. PRAIORITIZE uses some very advanced algorithms to calculate the support for the target by respondents and summarizes these in 4 flavors:
Respondents are uniformly in agreement with the target. Time to implement. Go, go, go!
Respondents are not in agreement as a group but to accept the target. So, follow the leader.
Respondents are not in agreement as a group nor do they like the target.
Proceed with caution. Step-by-step.
Respondents are rather aligned in their rejection of the target. There are two options to aproach this: confrontation or comprise. So, carefully weigh your next steps.
You can see in-depth how support may differ among respondent groups for each of the topics (a group of dimensions, each covering a set of questions) in the questionnaire. Click on:

Columns with where the icon shows the most 'visible people' represent topics of which the target is generally accepted. Same for rows: these are respondent groups that are generally in line with the target. Managers will look for the icons with the least visible people to either know where they have to go into a discussion how to get more support or where to focus their internal communication to anyhow sell the target.
