Align People and Business StrategiesAlign People & Business Strategies 

Regardless of the industry in which they work, organizations and businesses come across a variety of issues in terms of the people that work there and their performance.  It has been found that the biggest issue is that the two types of strategies employed in businesses, which are people strategies and business strategies, are misaligned.

If change takes place, such as the standardization of processes, internal growth, acquisition, restructuring and so on, this misalignment tends to get worse very quickly.  If a company is committed to having excellent organizational development and change strategies in place, then this misalignment is often reduced significantly.

Adaptive Testing Activated For All Everything DiSC Profiles

This post is a follow-up to our original announcement, on May 30, 2012, about Adaptive Testing.

Beginning July 21, 2012, Everything DiSC assessments will use Adaptive Testing (AT) and a new, more sophisticated scoring algorithm to give participants the most precise DiSC® style assignment possible.

AT is more aligned with contemporary psychological testing—it’s frequently used in aptitude tests, so you may be familiar with the AT assessment method.  With AT, respondents are presented with questions and their responses determine the next questions they’re given.
