Judgement Index Assessment

Quality outcomes in business rely on an individual’s good judgement.

When you consider the number of decisions you have to make in any day and the impact they can have, then it is essential to get them right. A method for evaluating good judgement can help you nurture and gain better quality outcomes.

The Judgment Index™ is the world’s original and best values based assessment tool. It is one of the most highly mathematical, scientific and logically-based assessment instruments ever created.  It was established in the early 1970’s from decades of research by Nobel Prize nominee, Dr Robert S Hartman. It enables you to measure, build and strengthen an individual’s capacity to make good judgement. As more employees are empowered to make their own decisions, it becomes vital to ensure they are making the right ones.

The term judgement in this instance refers to a far wider context than decision making. It also includes how a person interacts with people and their respective environment.  It is with this information that you are able to predict performance and identify potential risks and barriers to success.

It starts with the value system

Crucial to this judgement in any business process is an individual’s value system. This is not something a person has, it is a summation of who they are and a result of their journey to this point. This evolves throughout our lives and is influenced by every event, experience and individual who touches our lives. Our value system is manifested in a number of ways and will ultimately impact on the way we make the decisions we do.

Building on the value system

If you take the time and use this measure, you can start to understand your position, your stance and the reasoning behind the decisions you make. You can recognise your strengths and where you can improve. This ultimately is to the benefit of yourself and the business. It has been used effectively by organisations such as Harrods, Siemens, Ministry of Defence, Mayo Clinic, Ryder Cup Team and many more.

It can deliver positive differences for you in

  • improving judgement capabilities
  • recruitment
  • leadership development
  • risk management
  • well-being programmes and stress reduction
  • team building
  •  job fit
  • promotion and succession planning.

“We sometimes see a fool possessed of talent but never of judgement”

The decisions you make will determine the life you lead. Make the right decision and contact us for more information on what the Judgement Index can do for your business. 

“ The (Judgement Index) assessment took no longer than 15 / 20 minutes . It was all done on-line – very straight forward, easy to navigate and complete. When the results came back I was really taken back. The amount of information about the person doing the assessment is quite staggering.

It suggests some areas for development and looks at the balance of judgement in relation to people / relationships, work and tasks, self-esteem and confidence, self-concept and role satisfaction and self-image.  In my opinion this tool will help to ensure that you have the right people in the right positions at the right time. ”
