The Hale Center's Research Services
Doing a Job Analysis? Practice Analysis? Industry Study? Consider the Center’s Research Services.
The Center conducts literature searches related to current social, economic, health, credentialing, and workforce trends. The literature searches include papers published by international groups such as the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, the European Commission, and the like; professional and trade associations; government entities such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics; universities and research institutes such as Georgetown University; private entities such as Price Waterhouse Coopers, Accenture, and Deloitte; and the Business press such as Forbes, Harvard Business Review, and the like. The Center also includes electronic or digital searches. The Center does qualitative analyses of the findings, summarizes the findings, and prepares reports and presentation materials.
The Center conducts proprietary studies for clients that include polling stakeholders, observing work tasks, and analyzing industry reports. The studies incorporate a range of data-gathering methods such as surveys, individual interviews (open, structured, critical incident, sociogram), group interviews and discussions (Focus, Delphi, and Nominal Group Technique), literature searches, and observations. The findings are analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively, summarized, and documented for publication and presentation.
The output of the research is used to inform leaders and for the job task practice analysis phase of designing credentials. The outputs are also used for developing training, talent management, and recruiting strategies.
What distinguishes the Center’s research is its thoroughness and readability by the intended user.
