The power of Lectica's recruitment tools lies in our ability to determine Precise Role Fit with a Precise Role Complexity Analysis (PRCA). Precise Role Complexity Analyses make it possible for us to calculate Precise Role Fit, which is required for the recruitment use of our assessments.
The teal band in the Role Fit Snapshot below represents the Precise Role Complexity range of a particular role. The colors of the circles representing individual scores tell us how well the Lectical Scores of candidates fit this complexity range. High Precise Role Fit scores, in combination with ESR++ scores (plus a score we don't advertise), provide the information required to make recommendations about which candidates should move forward in your recruitment process.
A role fit snapshot can be provided when multiple candidates are being considered for a role.
For a detailed example, see the article, Fit-to-role, Clarity, and VUCA skills.
Most recruitment processes today include at least some assessment of the alignment between a candidate's beliefs, values, and attitudes and those of the organization. Lectica's Team Fit Assessment looks at an even more predictive dimension—developmental compatibility—a measure of how the complexity level of a candidate's skills dovetail with the complexity levels of teammates' skills.
A bad fit can be toxic. The subordinate whose skills are more developed than those of her supervispr is likely to become frustrated or disengaged. The teammates of a superstar who consistently out-thinks everyone else on the team are likely to become demoralized or hostile. When developmental compatibility is not taken into account, situations like this are common, teams suffer, and talent is wasted.
The Team Fit Assessment helps organizations build high-functioning teams and optimize their leadership hierarchy. The following figure shows how the scores of existing team-members relate to the average Role Fit Range of team-member roles. Understanding the current configuration of a team is just as important as knowing the Precise Role Fit scores of candidates for a particular role, because it helps answer the question, "Is this candidate a good fit for this particular team?"
At Lectica, we believe in total transparency regarding the validity and reliability of all assessments employed in the workplace. We can confidently say that Lectical Assessments are the most sophisticated assessments of mental skill in the marketplace today. Each one is based on exhaustive and ongoing research into the development of targeted skills, using a well-vetted set of research methods and our breakthrough technologies. We have conducted numerous studies of validity and reliability, several of which are published in psychometric journals. We invite you to explore our research pages or contact us to learn more.
Using any assessment in selection involves high stakes—for individuals and institutions. It is essential to ensure their use in selection processes is valid and ethical. The Lectica First, Lectica Suite, and Lectica for Admissions products are designed to ensure valid and fair use. In addition to a Lectical Assessment, they always involve: (1) a General Complexity Analysis, (2) a Precise Complexity Analysis, and (3) a Sweet-spot calculation. It is not acceptable to use Lectical Assessments in selection processes without these components, and only Lectica is authorized to offer these analyses.
