The SYMLOG (SYstematic Multiple Level Observation of Groups) system brings together the key evaluative elements of several behavioral theories into one concise instrument, for a comprehensive method of group analysis.  Linked to microcomputer technology, the SYMLOG rating forms produce highly sophisticated yet practical analyses of group and individual behavior.

SYMLOG is both a field theory of social-psychological interaction and a system of measurement. SYMLOG has been used in value-based change efforts worldwide. to better understand How, Why and by Whom. SYMLOG , developed through over fifty years of continuous research at Harvard University is:

         an empirically grounded social science based on over one million research profiles;

         a comprehensive, empirically-driven theory of unification and polarization in human interaction;

         a clear and compelling model illustrating value congruence and conflict in groups and organizations;

         an accurate, versatile, and easy-to-use instrument for measuring perceptions of effectiveness;

         a method of analysis that produces highly personalized graphic and written feedback;

         a normative guide for teaching leadership and teamwork and maximizing organizational performance;

         an integrated system bridging international work settings and diverse cultures.

         SYMLOG has been used in over forty countries in 12 languages.


The SYMLOG process increases the probability that when individuals or groups try to improve, their efforts will be successful. Learning will take place and adaptability to changing conditions will become an accepted process. SYMLOG offers a constructive way to turn insight into action.

         SYMLOG incorporates the dimensions identified in the FIRO-B .

         SYMLOG is well suited for use with the Kirton Adaption-Innovation Inventory ( KAI ).
