What is PPA (Personal Professional Analysis)?

From the link: http://www.gateconsulting.com/ppa_moreabout.htm

During the course of life a person will be confronted with many situations and problems. TheProfessional Personal Analysis (P.P.A) tells you how a person actually deals with situations in life. Some of his solutions are rational and will handle the situation. Other solutions are irrational and will get him deeper into trouble. The content of this "package of solutions" reflects the strengths and weaknesses of the individual.

The P.P.A. is in essence 10 major tests combined in one. The results cover quite extensively 10 fundamental personal capacity traits. These traits contain in themselves, and even more so in relation to each other, a wealth of information – invaluable in predicting one’s behaviour. The test results are divided into traits and opposite traits each of them reflecting a noticeable and measurable tendency or behaviour pattern. The characteristics measured are as follows:
  1. Stability
  2. Goal Attainment
  3. Composure
  4. Certainty
  5. Activity
  6. Drive
  7. Sense of responsibility
  8. Correct estimation
  9. Empathy
  10. Communication
(Please read the full article from the link above. This is so AWESOME !!! Too bad, it is not a part of MBA textbook learning yet - in this exact form - though I have seen different versions. What you understand by this article is this: NOT ALL learning is present in MBA text books. There is plenty of knowledge out there in the hands of private organizations - especially consulting firms that are not accessible to the general public or even the general MBA student)
