About MPI

Who does not know the need to have a manager who is “visionary but grounded”?

A number of management paradoxes contribute to making management and demands on managers more and more complex.

Actually, management paradoxes spring from an organisation’s operational paradoxes. As an organisation, you need both development and a certain degree of stability. Many organisations are facing increased competition, but are simultaneously expected to be able to cooperate with other organisations, public authorities and sometimes even competitors.

MPI is a test tool that tests your individual management behaviour. MPI focuses on the paradoxes and pinpoints those areas where you are adept or less adept at balancing management paradoxes.

  • MPI is a way of testing and evaluating your individual management behaviour.
  • MPI is built around known paradox management theories and focuses on the paradoxes that a good manager needs to be able to resolve.
  • MPI verbalises good and bad management and evaluates both individual management profiles and what is needed in the current management position.
  • MPI does not consider all profiles as equal, but pinpoints strengths and weaknesses in your management behaviour with regard to your current position.
  • MPI offers an individual self-test, a 360° test (for instance involving employees or co-workers) and a match test that compares current job requirements with your individual profile.
  • Besides being a management behaviour test, MPI is a structured way of working on your management behaviour. MPI allows you to develop management behaviour in a way that benefits the entire organisation.
  • MPI can be beneficial to entire management groups before starting a joint management course.
  • MPI provides a shared management language that can be used by the managers involved.
