What is Grid?

Developed over 40 years ago, Grid is the most extensively used organization development program in the world. Methodology is based on a proven theory of human behaviour that transcends cultural boundaries and fosters innovation and the desire to change.

The Grid itself is a framework for understanding various approaches to leadership, and how those different approaches can harness or impede potential. It has two components: Concern for Production and Concern for People, which are measured on a scale from 1 to 9.



How it works.
Concern for Production refers to commitment to expected outcome, such as number of units produced, time expended, sales volume, quality level - whatever a team is responsible for producing.

Concern for People refers to attitude towards superiors, peers or subordinates, and include concerns about job satisfaction, quality of work life, training/development, working conditions, salary structure, fringe benefits, job security, etc.

Grid theory identifies seven broad leadership styles. Identifying styles allows people to understand different approaches and their respective strengths and weaknesses.
