About the Adaptive Metrics Center
The Adaptive Metrics Center is a
division of the Center for the Open Enterprise, LLC
(COE). Over the past few years, research work at COE has led to the development of extremely detailed conceptual frameworks and software templates that focus on organizational learning, problem solving, adaptation, and openness. These frameworks provide a foundation for the quick development of new tests and metrics in a variety of areas dealing with organizational change, sustainability, competitiveness, organizational intelligence, risk intelligence and management, problem solving, self-organization, and organizational adaptiveness. In particular, they provide a foundation for dealing with the problems of
adaptive scorecards and
risk intelligence and management;
two areas of surpassing importance for present-day organizations. The first deals with business performance measurement and the second with expectations of future performance.
COE has established the Adaptive Metrics Center (AMC) to
issue reports on metrics in these two areas
hold workshops on measurement and adaptive metrics and
provide consulting implementing adaptive metrics systems for measuring the impact or organizational policies, programs, and behavior
