Intercultural Awareness Profiler (IAP)
Every existing culture has a place in between two extremes of seven cultural dimensions. Five describe interpersonal relationships, one in relation to time, and one in relation to the environment. To measure culture, we have created the IAP.IAP questionnaire is designed to assess the personal orientation of choices that an individual makes when resolving intercultural business issues. Using a range of diagnostic questions, the questionnaire is able to elicit individual cross-cultural orientations against the Seven Dimensions of Culture model. The IAP can be used in conjunction with workshops as well as in coaching situations. It allows the user to perform a comprehensive personal analysis of their own cross-cultural orientation based on their individually generated profile and the personalized feedback provided.
Intercultural Competence Profiler (ICP)
Intercultural competence describes someone’s ability to reconcile dilemmas on various levels. We have accumulated a significant body of evidence showing that reconciling values makes business more effective.
Corporate Culture Profiler (CCP)
There are two main dilemmas at the core of each business, which we use to model the corporate culture. Using this method, we can compare different organizations and elicit their dilemmas. We do this using our CCP. CCP is a multi-functional instrument that enables participants to review and examine the interpretations employees give to relationships with each other and with the organization as a whole. Specifically, the CCP looks at the perceived current and idealized perceptions of issues such as: Corporate Effectiveness (towards mission/goals), Efficiency, Loyalty, Learning and Values, as well as possible other areas as per the request of the individual client. Like other corporate culture diagnostic tools, the CCP offers a simple diagnosis of the dominant culture in your organization using 4 typologies: Incubator, Family, Guided Missile and Eiffel Tower. This could be helpful in either mergers/acquisitions, strategic change, diversity, globalization, or other related issues.
