Prof. C Balaji, Head – Symphony University, the Corporate University of Symphony Services Pvt Ltd

The CII Institute of Quality is pleased to announce a two day Certificate Course on “Psychometrics for HR and OD” on 19-20 August 2009, at Chennai.

Understanding the psychological make up of human beings has been of great interest for a long time. This understanding in the context of organizational employees is important not because it is ‘good to know’; it is actually crucial for taking a variety of employee-related decisions. In fact, there exists a strong belief that it is better to have an employee who lesser skilled and more positively oriented than one who is an expert with poor attitude.

How does one understand the psychological characteristics of employees? Psychometrics – the field of study that is concerned with the measurement of psychological variables – helps us to understand psychological characteristics in a scientific manner.

Principles of psychometrics are also relevant to measurement involved in Organisation Development interventions.


The course will focus on inputs and discussions that will enable the participants to use psychometric instruments in the fields of HR an OD.

Key topics

ü What Psychometrics is about and how it is useful
ü Key concepts in psychometrics and their importance
ü Instruments in psychological measurement

Þ What an instrument is
Þ What can instruments be used for
Þ How to develop an instrument (briefly)
Þ How to select an instrument from available ones
Þ How to administer an instrument
Þ How to score an instrument
Þ How to interpret the scores
Þ What to do after interpreting

The participants will also be exposed to Assessment / Development Centers and to measuring organization level variables like organizational climate.

As a part of the course, participants will answer two instruments. Through this, they will not only learn about some of their own psychological characteristics, but also learn the contents of the course with first hand experience.

Participants will get hand-on experience of many of the principles of psychometrics.

The book “Training Instruments in HRD and OD” by Dr Udai Pareek will be a part of the course material.

For Whom
This course is open for HR, Recruitment and OB/OD professionals, Heads and Senior Managers in small / medium / large organizations, Management Consultants and Corporate trainers.

0930 – 1730 Hrs : Saturday 13 June 2009 : Hotel Sun-n-Sand, Panaji Goa

Introduction: The whole world is going through recession. This time the recession is going to be one of the worst in history. The effect is already visible. Job losses, closure of manufacturing units, decline in demands, strikes and protests and so on. Some countries have been affected more than the others, but the effect is there for all to see. In this scenario, one can sit idle and accept the situation as inevitable. The alternate approach is to take it as challenge and work out strategies to beat the recession. Many companies are following the second approach.

It is now time to look critically into our operations, and come out with new ideas. Einstein once remarked: “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. This is the right time to imagine beyond what we are doing and take a fresh re-look in all our activities.

One very important aspect for success of any organization is “PRODUCTIVITY”. We have to ask ourselves: Is the productivity highest or there is scope for improvement?

The second important aspect is “QUALITY”. Are we able to meet the requirements of all customers? There are many organizations who are not able to sell the product or get the right price, as they are no able to meet the quality requirements. Can we do some thing about this?

The third important aspect is “INNOVATION”. There is an interesting quotation which goes like this: “You look at things and you ask me: WHY? But, I dream of things that never were, and I say “WHY NOT?”

That is the spirit of innovation. For too long we have been copying others, we have been followers. It is time to be leader, it is time to be innovator, it is time to come out with new products, it is time to bring innovative ideas to reduce cost and attract customers, it is time for improvement in existing products and processes.

Against this backdrop, CII is organizing a one day Workshop on “FIGHTING RECESSION THROUGH PRODUCTIVITY, QUALITY and INNOVATION” on 13 June 2009 (Saturday) at Hotel Sun-n-Sand commencing at 0930hrs to 1730hrs.

In the seminar different approaches to Productivity Improvement, Quality Improvement and Innovation will be discussed. Some of the topics will be:

· Elimination of waste
· Improvement of efficiency
· Total Productive Maintenance
· Multi Skill
· Motivation
· Time Management
· Attributes of Quality
· Total Quality Management
· Japanese Tools for Quality
· Creation of atmosphere for Innovation
· Approaches to innovation
· And many other relevant subjects

Who should attend:
· Head of Works/Plant/Unit
· Head of Production/Manufacturing
· Production Manager and Production Executive
