Create your own competency profiles
A Web-based subscription tool, Success Profile Architect lets users merge multiple research or expert profiles to estimate competency models that can be used for individuals, jobs, roles, teams or organizations.
Success Profile Architect can also be used:
- To develop profiles to serve as the foundation for interview guides for selection processes and various other applications
- To create draft and final competency profiles with groups like expert panels, subject matter experts, leaders, incumbents, etc.
- For in-house practitioners who are asked to draft profiles for key jobs, assignments or other executive development activities
- To store organizational competency profiles
- For sophisticated coaching applications
- For succession planning and "assignmentology" (SPA can be used to determine the most likely competencies a potential job might require and which ones would be useful for developing a high potential)
Although certification is not required to purchase this tool, we do offer instruction in its use if you purchase Success Profile Architect as a stand-alone subscription product. If you purchase both Success Profile Architect and Interview Architect Online Software, you will be trained in its use at the certification(required) for Interview Architect. (See the Events and Courses section of our Web site for more information.)

Seven international competency areas
