New Cognitive Assessment Measure for Business Environment

Share Article

Hogan Assessment Systems announces the release of the Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) as the first cognitive assessment measure that identifies decision-making style in a business environment and predicts occupational success.

The HBRI evaluates the ability to reflect on one’s past, determine where problems have occurred, and devise methods to avoid repeating those problems in the future. Scores on the HBRI reflect a person’s potential problem-solving ability and decision-making style.

Hogan Assessment Systems announces the release of the Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) as the first cognitive assessment measure that identifies decision-making style in a business environment and predicts occupational success.

Based on evolutionary psychology and years of psychometric research, the HBRI is positioned to become the industry standard for assessing two kinds of problem solving—tactical and strategic reasoning. Tactical reasoning is the ability to solve problems and come to sensible conclusions once facts are known, while strategic reasoning concerns the ability to evaluate current business practices from a long-term perspective.

The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory is useful for both employee selection and career development. The HBRI identifies individuals who learn quickly on the job and are able to solve problems and understand strategic implications of the economy and competitive environment. The HBRI is also useful for helping individuals understand their reasoning style and develop career strategies that take advantage of their unique competencies.

The HBRI contains items representing three content areas: verbal, quantitative, and graphic material. Developed and validated exclusively on working adults, the average completion time is 25 to 30 minutes. Respondents complete the assessment online and receive results within seconds after completion.

"This is an exciting new product offering to the business world. By using the HBRI, companies now have a business-related measure of cognitive ability designed to predict real-world performance," says Dr. Joyce Hogan, Vice President of Hogan Assessment Systems.

Hogan states, "The HBRI evaluates the ability to reflect on one’s past, determine where problems have occurred, and devise methods to avoid repeating those problems in the future. Scores on the HBRI reflect a person’s potential problem-solving ability and decision-making style."
