This is a stub that continues an earlier posting:
This part will
- Discuss the strengths and limitations of psychometric indicators that measure a specific dimension, such as ‘achievement orientation’ and ‘entrepreneurial orientation’ and why these indicators should be augmented by use of a general assessment instrument.
- Discuss my preference for using StrengthsFinder in comparison with several other psychometric indicator tools, such as MBTI, TMI and the Belbin Team Role Indicator.
- Explore strategies for scaffolding (articulating) the use of a psychometric indicator throughout the entire Faculty of Creative Industries and Business academic programmes, through students’ creation of a Professional Learning Agenda (PLA) and staff development.
My preference for using StrengthsFinder
- The fine, personalised detail provided by StrengthsFinder
- The easy and multiple means of access to the StrengthsFinder system: one could purchase an access code via on-line puchase, or through purchasing one of several quite affordable books that included an access code to the StrengthsFinder assessment site
- The modest cost when compared with the industrial-focussed TMI and Belbin assessments
- Users can access substantial ‘what next’ information from the StrengthsFinder site to help in their personal and inter-personal development.
