Success ProfilesSM

Enabling competency management by defining what great talent looks like

DDI’s approach to helping organizations find the best talent is rooted in decades of research. Drawing on this, we’ve taken competency management to a new level and developed a methodology that provides a detailed, whole-person portrait of what’s required to succeed in a given role or job level.

DDI provides proven, flexible, comprehensive job analysis and competency management solutions to help you efficiently and accurately identify the competencies, personal attributes, knowledge, and experience that define an ideal performer—what we call Success ProfilesSM.

We work with you to define your most critical business drivers (e.g., opening new global markets, boosting market share, driving innovation). Next, we custom-craft your holistic Success Profiles, pinpointing exactly what is required for peak performance.

As a result, these Success Profiles are tightly linked to your business strategies and serve as a solid foundation for better talent decisions at all levels.
