Competency Analysis

We work with the competency analysis to assess personality factors critical to success and provide you with ideas and inspiration regarding performance and career development for managers.

Prof. Dr. Gerald Huether and Dipl. Psych. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Dohne developed this computer-based method on the basis of the current state of research in neuroscience.

As simple as the competency analysis is to carry out, it interpretation is both comprehensive and complex.

  • More about the PSA Competency Analysis

    Modern brain research has found that the frontal brain serves as a higher central command centre. This higher structure is also where the so-called "executive meta-competencies" are located in the form of complex interconnection processes. These meta-competencies include central skills such as thinking and acting with foresight (strategic competence), understanding complex problems (problem-solving) and being able to assess the consequences of your own actions (competence to act, prudence), the ability to focus on the solution to a specific problem and to concentrate accordingly (motivation and concentration), to identify and correct errors and mistakes in time when searching for a solution (insight and flexibility) and to not be overwhelmed by other emerging requirements when completing tasks (frustration tolerance, impulse control).

    The ability or inability to successfully face challenges is by no means innate or even due to chance. Meta-competencies are developed through learning processes based on experience. Thus, human performance is the result of complex interaction between thinking, feeling, and decision-making processes. In principle, the independent factors can act in parallel and often influence each other. Experiences gained throughout the course of life (learning) determine the subjective evaluations of new situations, tasks, and opportunities.

    The system captures inner attitudes such as belief systems, beliefs and values. These are made visible at the level of executive meta-competencies in the form of behavioural patterns that people display within the artificial environment of the PSA tasks. In other words: The PSA environment challenges subjects to ascribe importance to precisely those areas that are of relevance to them. These figures can be used to derive relevant statements about professional success.
