Descriptive and Prescriptive Approaches to Assessing Fit

An Improved Descriptive Values Assessment

We are currently testing an updated Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) to describe individual values. The updated assessment will include the same 10 scales as the current MVPI, but will measure new subscales to provide three different insights into people: (a) what types of jobs they want, (b) what drives or motivates them, and (c) what subconscious biases may affect their views.

A New Prescriptive Values Assessment

Hogan is also interested in measuring organizational values using a prescriptive framework. Specifically, we are working on research to identify how leaders’ values relate to organizational effectiveness. The project’s goal is to identify and assess the values that leaders should have and promote to make their organizations more successful.
