Wave Performance Culture Framework

Wave Performance Culture Framework

At the heart of our assessments is the Wave Performance Culture Framework. This is our extensively researched model of the key characteristics that underpin success at work. It comprises the areas of Behavior, Ability and Global.

The Behavior element refers to people’s behavioral styles and competencies. The Wave model, at the heart of our Wave questionnaire, uses a hierarchical structuring consisting of four clusters, 12 sections, 36 dimensions and 108 facets of behavior.

'Ability' assesses a person's abilities to perform intellectual or cognitive tasks such as verbal comprehension, numerical reasoning or abilities in working with designs or systems.

'Global' refers to a person’s performance in work in areas such as 'Applying Expertise', 'Accomplishing Objectives' and 'Demonstrating Potential'. Again, using a hierarchical structure, the 'Global' element consists of three sections and nine dimensions.

This Culture Framework can be accessed in two easy-to-use formats:

  • Our Culture Card Set for interactive card-sort sessions
  • An online Job Profiler enabling different people to quickly provide their perspectives on the requirements for a job role or on organizational competencies
