People, Preferences and Performance

Front Cover
This guide to career selection helps employers assess job descriptions and job applicants and explains why people make the decisions they do and why they have certain preferences. The author's extensive consulting and teaching experience has led to the development of the Decision Preference Analysis (DPA). It is a simple test which accurately measures personal (psychological and motivational) preferences, and has gained Kable international recognition for this contribution to management knowledge. The test measures one's preference for either quantitative or qualitative tasks. Kable argues that matching these two factors in career choices and staffing policy will lead to greater personal satisfaction and to better utilization of human resources.
