If you are involved in hiring, this tool can help you increase your chances of selecting staff members skilled in adaptive management. It will help answer the questions:

  • Which competencies should I recruit for in order to hire more adaptive employees?
  • Which desired qualifications should I incorporate into position descriptions to attract adaptive employees?
  • Which interview questions should I ask to screen for adaptive employee competencies?

You should use this tool when you decide to hire a new individual - whether that be a direct hire, contractor, or consultant - or when you are changing an individual’s current position description or scope of work. Specifically, this tool will help you determine which qualifications are most important for the position and offers interview questions you can use with candidates.
