Diagnostic & Goals

Our team brings along extensive experience in handling different kinds of personnel and organisational development topics, drawing on various tried-and-tested methods of psychological diagnostics that suit each specific customer’s needs.


The IMAP Institute works with the following methods:

  • Psychological test procedures for assessing professional potential, management evaluation, personal performance analysis for burnout prevention
  • Employee surveys
  • Developing questionnaires for anonymous online surveys or manuals for individual interviews
  • Analysis and risk assessment of mental stress
  • Solution-focused preparation talks
  • Systemic preparation workshops

Suggestions from employees, gathered through online surveys and interviews, can be used as important starting points to come up with practical solutions. The IMAP Institute coordinates the entire process in an open and appreciative consultation with the customer.


Objectives are cooperatively set and pragmatic solutions are conceptualised based on the results of the diagnostic phase. Here IMAP uses its years of experience and well-tested tools to make sure that resources are fully utilised and solutions are steadily integrated.

Evaluation profile of a BIP

(Business-focused Inventory of Personality)


The BIP is a scientific personality test which we use at IMAP for occupational and  leadership development purposes in particular. The 19 scales assess personality traits that are relevant in the work environment. Strengths and potentials are identified, and can later be used to define the focus of leadership development measures. The profile shows the comparison of a person’s self-perception and perception by others. Each assessment includes a detailed report, which we reflect individually with each participant.


Another potential application of the BIP is preparing a job description, as may be used for the recruitment processes.
