ADR DNA® (Development Needs Analysis) is a secure, flexible, online skills audit that can be tailored to complement the strategic sourcing process and competency framework used in your organization.

ADR DNA® provides the vital first step in any purchasing skills development program.  Using ADR DNA® to identify where the skills gaps are, it is much simpler task to develop a demand-led approach to the provision of training and development that fits exactly with the needs of the individual and your organization.  In addition, ADR DNA® can be used on an on-going basis to identify if particular approaches to training and development are working or failing.

This world-class product is suitable for implementing within any organisation but is particularly effective when used in multi-location global companies with a purchasing team spread over several different countries. So far, over 20,000 participants have completed DNA in 53 countries.

Because the whole skills audit is done securely online, any time and anywhere you have internet access ADR DNA®  is considerably quicker and more cost effective than any alternative approach. It is non-threatening, can be done outside the normal office hours, can be used on a regular basis and can be applied consistently across all of your geographic regions.

For a true 360 approach assessment the survey can be completed by; the candidate, his or her manager, stakeholders and ADR.  Alternatively, it can be restricted to the candidate only or the candidate and his or her manager only. The choice is yours.

ADR DNA® can be used as part of your Academy.
