Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)
What motivates and “drives” this individual?
What type of work environment will he/she consider most motivating?
What is he/she likely striving to attain?
The MVPI provides insight regarding a person's core values, goals, and interests. This information relates to the environment in which the person will perform best and the kind of culture the person will recreate as a leader.
From a selection standpoint, organisations often use information yielded by the MVPI to ensure that new hires’ values align with those of the organisation and the rewards offered by the target job.
From a development standpoint, the MVPI highlights an individual’s motivators or “drivers” – what he or she desires and, as a result, likely strives to attain. The MVPI can also help diagnose areas of compatibility and conflict among team members.
When used in conjunction with the and , individuals can gain insight regarding the degree to which their behavioural tendencies align with their value-laden aspirations – this information can be used as a foundation for behavioural goal setting.
