“Each PDA Report has a price, but what we, as Consultants, can to do with it is priceless…”


The PDA University includes actions carried out by PDA International which are aimed to transfer the “PDA expertise and knowledge” to Certified Analysts, Clients and Partners.

The first step of the PDA learning process is the PDA Analyst Certification Seminar where each participant will learn about the suggested way of administrating the PDA Assessment Form and the correct way of analyzing and interpreting the PDA Full Reports and Graphs.

To continue this learning process it is important for each certified PDA Analyst to learn in depth and train themselves in how to use give several and adequate uses to the PDA Assessment tool and applying its results in every HR process: selection, HR Talent Development Programs, Training Sessions, Workshops, group and individual PDA feedbacks, and coaching among others.

This is why the main purpose of the PDA University is to consolidate within Partners, Certified Analysts and Clients their PDA expertise and knowledge by sharing documents, consultation tips and key aspects, training materials and instructions that are necessary for them to successfully submit an PDA Assessment application, as well as preparing themselves when facilitating and conducting workshops and consulting sessions based on the information obtained through the PDA Assessment Report.

    “Companies today are faced with tough challenges, among others, increasing their business profit, which fortunately, sometimes, it´s enough by restructuring the organization, its areas and resources. As Peter Drucker said, “Innovation is to find new or improved uses of the resources that we already have”. If we do not know the potential of each of the members of our company, it is possible that we give them wrong responsibilities, errors which, among other things, leads to discouragement and poor performance. In this step, the use of technology is key to achieve effectiveness and reduce cost and time. The PDA Assessment is a scientifically validated tool which use is aimed to impact on the efficiency of the processes carried out from the areas of Human Resources allowing the PDA Analysts to know, in a few minutes, the behavioral profile of applicants and candidates. By using the PDA Assessment Tool, we can then build a strategic plan by selecting, interviewing and assessing the right candidates; retain talents; develop and integrating team members effectively in their job positions and with their group colleagues; leading them effectively, among other uses regarding Human Resources.”

It provides the opportunity to observe oneself from a different perspective and discover effectiveness gaps in their leadership lines and interactions with their teams.
