What is MAP-X?

The core is an HR strategy that answers the question: What does it take to succeed, and what are we looking for with our employees and managers? Without a framework that is concrete, behavior-based and well-founded, we get stuck in vague and inadequate descriptions that often mean different things to different decision makers – and not least – different values

What can MAP-X be used for?

MAP-X provides you with an objective decision basis that can help you choose between candidates in a recruitment process, identify toxic leadership behaviors, assemble high-performing teams, and provide insights on an individual’s challenges.

What does MAP-X measure?

MAP-X measures extreme aspects of an individual’s personality. The result can help you predict a person’s risk behaviors.

MAP-X is based on the very latest research in risk behavior, with a clear requirement for the link between the test result and its impact in the professional world. The test was developed by Assessio together with a world-leading American team of psychometrists led by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Professor of Business Psychology at University College London as well as Columbia University and Bachelor of Science. CEO of Hogan. See Tomas Ted Talk above.

Assessio feels the same responsibility for everyone who comes into contact with our tools. In order for you to make informed decisions about people’s future, it is also important that you understand how to interpret the results and what conclusions you can draw from MAP-X. You need an understanding of what the test measures, what you can communicate to a candidate and what decisions you can make based on the test result.

If MAP-X is not handled properly, it will not be a useful and successful service either. In the future, MAP-X will always be part of the basic certification training. For already certified, the training in MAP-X becomes a supplement.
