Claygate, Surrey, United Kingdom, 2006/08/31 - Saville Consulting have developed a ground breaking new questionnaire which assesses motives, talents, culture/environment fit and competency in just 15 minutes.
Saville Consulting are launching new questionnaires from the groundbreaking Wave Styles portfolio. Just nine months ago, Professor Peter Saville shook up the psychometric market with the launch of Saville Consulting Wave Professional Styles™. The Professional Styles questionnaires in the Wave Styles suite have new combined measures of motive and talent on each of the 108 behavioural work scales assessed. The questionnaires also assess an individual’s fit to working in a particular organisational culture/environment and performance potential. All this is achieved with a new online format which interacts with the respondent to give a more precise fix on an individual. The questionnaires give new insight into selection, development, coaching, teambuilding and talent identification/management applications.
For the next part of Saville Consulting’s extensive research and development strategy, Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles™ is now being launched. Amazingly it has takes only 1/3 of the administration time of Saville Consulting Wave Professional Styles, yet measures 36 individual styles areas– completed on average in just 15 minutes – and still maintains more than 80% of the validity of Saville Consulting Wave Professional Styles in predicting job success according to Professor Saville.
‘This has been achieved by a research and development strategy which selects the most effective indicators of performance from our questionnaires based on linking the questions to independent assessments of work performance.’ comments Professor Saville.
To celebrate this event Saville Consulting (savilleconsulting.com) are running a number of free Breakfast Seminars in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh in September where delegates can complete Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles for free, and receive a complimentary Focus Styles Report. The Breakfast Seminars run from 8.00am to 9.30am. To book a place at the free Breakfast Seminars, call or book online at our website.
As well as Expert Reports detailing an individual’s motives, talents, cultural alignment and competency potential, two other reports are available:
The Types report identifies potential people/task types, leadership style, team and peer interaction, managing change, cultural synergies and maximising potential. It seems to be particularly applicable in team building.
The Entrepreneurial Potential report, developed in partnership with Entrecode identifies individual entrepreneurial potential from within a talent pool.
Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles is available online in invited access (IA) and supervised access (SA) versions. Users can administer Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles through Saville Consulting Bureau, or by purchasing their own Saville Consulting Oasys™ online assessment system. Saville Consulting Wave has no license fees and costs are on a ‘pay as you go’ basis. You do not have to buy ‘assessment units’ up front as you have to do with many test suppliers.
To access Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles, current Level B accredited users who are trained in other personality questionnaires can attend a 1 day Saville Consulting Wave Conversion workshop or complete online distance learning modules.
Existing Saville Consulting Wave Users can access Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles immediately without any additional training.
