Development related consulting


Practitioner development

Whether you are a new practitioner in a corporate environment, or whether you are just starting a private practice, speak to us about developing the assessment skills, interviewing skills, reporting skills and other professional skills necessary to help you grow as a professional.

It is important for us that you should succeed as an assessment practitioner, and that you should feel confident using our measures in the most professional, responsible way. This could mean that we recommend that you complete one or more of our formal training courses, but we also offer informal mentoring on technical, professional and ethical questions that may arise during a practitioner’s growth journey,

Policy development

10384264 mDoes your organisation have an assessment policy?


  • Is your current assessment policy still up to date and in line with the existing regulations?
  • Do you need us to do a compliance audit on your assessment practices?
  • Do you need assistance with the development of any other organisational policies where our research expertise and knowledge of human behaviour can be helpful?
  • Do you need to gather evidence-based information prior to formulating a policy?


Consult with us, it will be worth your while.

Developing new assessment technology

9283097 mSometimes it is not a person, team or organisation that needs to be developed. The target of development consulting can also be processes, techniques, software, training materials, assessment instruments, questionnaires, etc. In such a case, we can propose and quote in two ways:

The first option is where the client owns the intellectual property at the end of the project. Such development work is done at our premium consulting rate.


The second option is where the client pays to expedite and prioritise the development of particular technology, but Psytech still owns the intellectual property on completion, and may market the product to other clients. When we can agree that this is a suitable course of action, we can do the development on a much more affordable basis.

Competency design

Psytech SA can offer job analysis and competency design services prior to an assessment project, or as a stand-alone service, after which the client can then utilize the information independently.

Mapping of existing competency models to Psytech measures

Sometimes clients already have a competency model in which they are invested, but they want help in understanding how Psytech instruments can be used to address those competencies. On a consulting basis, we can guide clients in the relationships between competencies and Psytech measures, indicating the relevance and importance of the different scales to the competencies that are in use. We can also guide clients in the selection of the appropriate reports and how to use them for the intended purpose.

Design and implementation of customised 360 degree appraisals

Sometimes a client wants to use their own competencies for a 360 degree appraisal project, rather than to use Psytech’s standard “Fine Nine” competency model, for which a 360 degree questionnaire already exists. This is entirely possible. Using a client’s competencies, or competencies developed for the client, we can implement the target behaviours on the GeneSysonline system to enable clients to run appraisal project economically and efficiently.
