Learning and Development solutions typically can be categorized as either assessments or interventions.
- Assessments : Focus on predicting the success or failure from a human resource perspective. Multiple types of assessments are available at the individual, team and organizational levels. Assessments include standardized tests like MBTI, DISC, and Hogan and 360 degree evaluations developed by the organization.
- Interventions : Focus in increasing the probability of success from a human resource perspective. Multiple types of interventions are available including training, eLearning, coaching and mentoring. The purpose of an intervention is to improve a metric/competency that the assessment has identified.
Our research efforts are focused on creating technology for more effective interventions and not to create yet another assessment. Dharma's technology has been designed to easily fit into existing learning and development strategies:
- Can be used to improve the metrics/competencies identified with any assessment tools available to the organization. This flexibility implies that the organization does not have to modify any of their existing learning and development practices.
- Can be used in conjunction with other interventions being used by the organization. As Dharma's solutions focus only on developing personality traits they can be used in conjunction with all existing interventions without creating any conflicts.
Dharma's technology should be viewed as an intervention module that can be easily added to existing learning and development programs to further improve their effectiveness.
