Organisational Health Index (OHI) Alumni Access

By Fogarty EDvance | June 12, 2020

In 2020, through Fogarty EDvance’s partnership with McKinsey and Company, FED Alumni schools had access to the Organisational Health Index (OHI) survey. The OHI is a tool used in the Fogarty EDvance School Improvement Program that measures how a school’s health is tracking and identifies areas for improvement – when school leaders know how to focus on developing organisational health, this can contribute to all school staff working together to positively impact student performance.

This is the first year Alumni schools have had access to the OHI post-program, and nine schools from Cohorts 3 and 4 participated in the OHI Alumni survey. As well as receiving a detailed OHI Report for their school, including a comparison to previous year’s results, there was also the opportunity for a debrief of results with the FED Team.

 Feedback has been very positive, with all participating schools excited to continue to use the OHI as a tool to assist their planning process and school improvement journeys. The OHI survey will be available at a discounted FED rate to Alumni schools in 2021. To pre-register, or for more information, please contact

Our three years with Fogarty EDvance were a really positive experience. The access to McKinsey’s expertise and the OHI Report were a highlight of that program. We saw the information provided by the OHI as a really informative tool and felt incredibly fortunate to have access. It would have been very short sighted of us to leave that good work behind when we had finished our three-year relationship with Fogarty.  It was also really helpful to have Stacey and Georgie analyse our report with us as we stand together on the balcony, rather than down on the crowded and busy dance floor.

As a new Principal to Balga Primary School, it has been a wonderful learning experience to develop my knowledge of the Fogarty EDvance processes and the positive impact the OHI has had on informing our direction and planning. I look forward to applying the OHI data to our Business Plan development process which will give us direction for the next three years.
