The power of Lectica's recruitment tools lies in our ability to determine Precise Role Fit with a Precise Role Complexity Analysis. A Precise Role Complexity Analyses makes it possible for us to calculate Precise Role Fit—required for recruitment use of our assessments.
The teal band in the figure below represents the Precise Role Complexity range of a particular role, and the colors of the circles that represent individual scores tell us how well the scores of candidates fit this complexity range. Precise Role Fit reports provide interpretations of Precise Role Fit and make recommendations about which candidates should move forward in your recruitment process.
Once we have established which candidates will move forward, we can compare these candidates' profiles with respect to Precise Role Fit, Clarity, and VUCA scores. The Role Fit Assessment report includes an analysis of these results that includes recommendations for action, as illustrated below.
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 another important dimension—developmental compatibility—a measure of how the complexity level of a candidate's skills dovetail with the complexity levels of teammate' skills.
A bad fit can be toxic. The subordinate whose skills are more developed than those of her boss is likely to become frustrated or disengaged. The teammates of a superstar who consistently out-thinks everyone else in 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 slide from our Team Fit report shows how a group of current team members fit their role.
The next slide shows how recruits are distributed relative to the complexity range of the role they are competing for and the scores for current team members.
At Lectica, we believe in total transparency regarding the validity and reliability of all assessments employed in the workplace. We can say with confidence 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.
The use of any assessment in selection involves high stakes—for individuals and institutions. It is essential to ensure that the use of assessments 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 accepetable to use Lectical Assessments in selection processes without these components, and only Lectica is authorized to offer these analyses.
