Assessments for Business Success
Based on more than 30 years of experience in measuring thinking and reasoning skills, INSIGHT Business is an array of assessment tools specifically designed to provide businesses with the metrics they need to create teams of people able to learn their jobs quickly and to perform successfully in situations requiring problem solving.
It costs businesses money when problems are solved based on poor reasoning skills; it also costs businesses money when staff choose not to apply their reasoning skills to problem-solving. If your staff includes individuals and teams who have strong reasoning skills, operations run more efficiently—and productively. It’s essential that you hire and promote your best thinkers.
Thinking matters—it is the springboard for problem-solving, decision making and innovation. Employees can have the skills but not the motivation to use them, so their mindset matters too.
INSIGHT Business measures essential business thinking skills (such as analyzing problems, evaluating options, managing consequences, managing uncertainty, managing numbers) plus associated important business thinking mindsets (such as job commitment, work ethic, honesty and focus).
Different skills are needed for different types of responsibility; thinking assessments are not one-size-fits-all.
INSIGHT Business provides four assessment levels which present increasingly complex job related decisions, targeting the skills required to be successful at specific levels of accountability. Scenarios are linked to specialized metrics which indicate the critical elements of business reasoning required to function in corporate positions. INSIGHT Business includes an assessment calibrated to meet your goals.
The four INSIGHT Business assessments have been designed to be increasingly challenging to best reflect the full range of thinking skills and mindsets required for the different levels within organizations.
- INSIGHT Executive: Business Leadership/ Senior Management: Senior executives, accountable for corporate strategy
- INSIGHT Business Professional: Business Professionals: Middle level leadership, highly skilled staff members, with independent responsibilities
- INSIGHT Business Staff: Core staff: Permanent, experienced and trusted staff; may supervise, train and lead other members of their team; often have access to key technology or machinery
- INSIGHT Support: Support staff with well-defined operational support functions, duties or tasks; temporary, seasonal or highly supervised staff
INSIGHT Business Delivers: Objective, reliable, statistically valid data about the specific strengths and weaknesses in the skills and motivation needed by employees, departments, divisions and leadership in their current and future responsibilities.
Identifying, hiring and promoting the best thinkers pays off: in quality staff, more efficient operations, error reduction, focused professional development.
