Adequacy: matching Talents and Job priorities
To find out if the Talents of the person correspond to the Job Priorities.
The Adequacy matches a person’s Talents with the Priorities of his/her Job to see if his/her resources and predispositions are appropriate to that position. Research shows that a Talents / Job Priorities rating over 70% is essential for high performance in the job.
A person with personal Talents in relation to the Job Priorities spontaneously invests his/her energies fully in the task, and performs the job with pleasure, using their natural ability. Work becomes a source of confidence and the person is capable of high performance in the long term. On the other hand a person whose Talents are not compatible with the Job Priorities must multiply their efforts to meet the requirements. Despite his/her efforts, the person usually achieves only average results. Their preferences divert them from their core objectives and tend to direct him/her towards secondary goals.
To carry out the Adequacy analysis, it is necessary to have first identified the Job Priorities profile of the position in question, and the Talents profile of the person whose adequacy rate is to be measured.
Main Applications of the Adequacy Analysis:
- Measure the match rate between a person’s Talents and the Job Priorities of a position.
- Understand or anticipate the cause of high or low performance.
- Develop a training plan tailored to the needs of the person in the position.
- Inform the person in the position how to manage his time according to the Job Priorities.
