Where academics & business meet each other
An objective situational test
was co-created by University Ghent & Creax, a leading consultancy firm on innovation. The research was led by Prof. dr. Frederik Anseel & his department of Work Psychology and Behavioral Economics. The findings of the theoretical research were validated by a reference group of 50 innovation experts working for customers of Creax. A mind map model was created. Instead of a subjective self-assessment, we developed an objective Situational Judgement Test (SJT) to map the innovation skills of people. INNDUCE.me was born.
Based on a psychological algorithm
The research started from a list of 60 potential competences needed for innovation. Finally we identified 20 innovation competences & 3 expert profiles to be on an innovation team: Ideator, Champion & Implementer.
Very seldomly we find those 3 basic profiles present in 1 person & if we do, this is an Innovation Master, the ideal candidate to take up the role of coach of the Innovation Team. Other potential members of an Innovation Team are selected for different reasons such as knowledge & expertise in a specific domain. They are identified by the assessment as Innovation Contributors & Innovation Partners. Although they play a vital role in the success of the team, they don’t take up an expert role in the Innovation Team.
