is the Predictive Index®?
Management Resources™ uses the Predictive Index® (PI®)
to help companies gain a competitive edge
and to help managers more effectively lead their organizations.
Based on proven behavioral science techniques, the
pinpoints traits that make employees understandable
and predictable. It also enables managers to measure
an individual’s drives and behaviors to determine
how the person would perform in a specific job and
interact with others. Available in more than 50 languages,
is used by more than 2,800 large and small businesses
around the world.
What is the purpose of PI®?

and valid information to decision makers to assist
them in developing motivated, productive organizations

understanding of the motivating drives of people. With
that information in hand, managers trained in PI®
better understand how an individual will respond to
and perform his or her job responsibilities. Managers
trained in PI®
can best position a person for success
and better support and develop each individual in his
or her charge.

prepared to provide appropriate and effective leadership
to their teams.

Who should use the PI®?

How is the PI® Administered?
is based on a simple, questionnaire that can
generally be completed in 10 to 15 minutes. Results
are quickly tabulated on site. The specific instructions
for administering PI®
are attached. In general, it is
administered in a relatively quiet, comfortable setting.
If administered to groups, it should be monitored to
assure that each individual completes his or her own
form without influence from other people.
Who should be trained in PI® and why?
Those managers who have direct responsibility for hiring,
developing, motivating and coaching people at all levels
of the organization would benefit greatly by using
. The PI®
information provides input to those managers
that can be used in every decision they make regarding
job and organization design, and in the selection,
development, coaching, and promoting of individuals.
In addition, the Human Resource professionals who
work most closely with the line managers in these
decisions would also benefit from the PI®
In this way, those professionals are better able
to partner with and support the managers in making
those critical decisions. Having both the line managers
and HR professionals “reading from the same
page” greatly enhances the effectiveness and
productivity of the recruitment, selection and development
