iPRIMED uses a proprietary seven dimensional assessment technique (iPRIMED Psychometric Assessment Tests - iPAT) to help identify the specific
needs of an individual and their strengths, weaknesses and limitations on the various skill buckets. Direct skills (aptitude, technology / domain)
are one amongst the seven dimensions and not the only dimension. There are five dimensions that cover behavioral and psychological aspects. One dimension
covers social and demographic aspects.
We strongly believe that though direct skills (aptitude, technology / domain) constitute an important trait for success in the corporate world,
it is not the only skill required for success. A significant proportion of high achievers in the academic world don’t do well in the corporate
world. By design, these people will perform well in the current ways of assessing i.e. direct skill driven, but they lack context to the
learning, they have minimal exposure to team work as individual brilliance is recognized more than team work (the topper is recognized more
than the others), they are mostly driven by extrinsic reward (behaviorism) etc. which becomes a handicap in the corporate world.
The assessment helps us in various ways:
- Suitability for hiring: iPAT not only helps assess job readiness of the candidate but also helps provide recommendations regarding
learnability, role alignment, role clarity and maturity levels.
- Suitability for learning / training: iPAT creates logical groupings which help us minimize variables thereby, building scale into the
model and expediting the learning process provides a good handle on the skill needs of the aspirants or individuals which helps us
customize curriculum and the modes and the duration of delivery - more intervention on core skills implies longer duration and smaller
class size and vice versa.
- As part of skill enhancement drives for e.g. interview readiness programs.
