The PROFILOR® Research Foundation
The PROFILOR® is grounded in research, beginning with answering the question: "What competencies are most important for success in today's business environment?" To answer this question, and several others, involved the following actions (among others):
Reviews of the management and psychology literature
Statistical analyses of a large, global, 360 feedback database
Job analysis questionnaires and hundreds of interviews with managers/leaders
Analyzing multiple company custom 360 models and identifying themes such as most important competencies and competencies most related to performance ratings
As the nature of work continues to evolve, know that we continue our research to this day, including critical research on such topics as advancement, derailment, and cultural differences, with the University of Minnesota HRD Research Colloquium Department of Organizational Leadership.
