Developed in collaboration with Huddersfield University, the SPICE Assessment is designed to be applied on its own or in tandem with customer’s favoured tools for personal development, to complement coaching, in supervision or as part of performance review.
Applied to teams and individuals, the SPICE Assessment provides immediate feedback for ongoing development.
Two of the SPICE Tools are used in assessing needs, the SPICE Assessment and the SPICE Evaluation tools
Everything within the SPICE Framework itself connects to the colours in the SPICE Framework logo, each of which relates to an aspect of individual and organisational performance
The SPICE Assessment applies the colours of the SPICE logo to aspects of human behaviour, as measures of development need and performance in individuals and teams.
Yes. You could use the SPICE Assessment to complement other tools
The SPICE Assessment is intended to be iterative. The idea is people can use it time and again and even ‘game it’ to track needs and development
The SPICE Assessment can be used on its own, simply as a coaching tool or as a tool for reflection. However It’s real power is in connecting to other SPICE Tools connecting people to performance.
Do gather a detailed assessment of needs and measure of performance, a business needs to anticipate planned value create and impacts. This can be done using the SPICE Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting tools.
Through infographic reporting to individuals, teams and to businesses through simple accessible dashboards that are easy to interpret and immediately applicable.
Providing access to development solutions anywhere and anytime, SPICE Tools enable the delivery of blended development solutions for individuals, teams and whole organisations, accessed through third parties or through the SPICE Store.
The SPICE Tools have been developed to empower people development in the context of real lives of people and business, through ‘blended solutions’. Key words in developing the tools are accessibility and ongoing development.
Solutions can be delivered in a blended form by whatever means businesses prefer. However at the heart of the SPICE Tools is a mobile platform, enabling businesses to provide development solutions to users anywhere and anytime.
Businesses are free to manage and deliver their own material through the team dashboard, connecting directly to their people where they are
Yes, although they don’t have to. Material can be sourced from the SPICE Store. It can also be developed as bespoke packages to meet the particular needs of individuals and businesses.
Yes. Although the SPICE Tools are not strictly speaking an LMS, data is recorded that includes learning and development programmes undertaken by individuals and teams. For most purposes a business won’t need an LMS if they use SPICE Tools.
The SPICE Tools are intended to be used as a flexible resource that enables development to be delivered directly to individuals and teams, at the point of need and with the minimum of fuss, cost and down time, enabling continuous improvement
Yes, individuals development is enabled and tracked. However administrators are also able to track the development of their team
All learning material are managed by team administrators who are able to provide access to any or all participants.
Businesses need to see measurable changes in behaviour and performance through development.
SPICE Evaluation tools have been developed to enable the consistent evaluation of change through people and organisational development applying simple tools in the palm of the user’s hand and generating immediate feedback to both users and administrators.
SPICE Tools, we’ve been involved in developing evaluation systems for almost 40 years. We know evaluation should be about measuring change in people, in their behaviour. This is at the heart of SPICE Evaluation
Because we are able to provide businesses with tools through SPICE Evaluation for asking questions of users that are focused on promoting behaviour change.
Using the SPICE Evaluation tool is simple, easy and generates immediate answers directly to users and team dashboards. Why wouldn’t you use such a convenient solution to assess the benefits of a training programme?
People may have a good time on a particular programme. It may make them feel good, happier maybe. This is fine, but it’s no measure of the difference the programme has made to people’s behaviour in role. Wouldn’t a business want to know about that?
Its a foolish business that doesn’t evaluate its business decision-making, the way it is spending its money. So why wouldn’t a business want to evaluate changes in their people’s behaviour through a development programme?
Yes. There is support within the SPICE Evaluation tool and additional on-line and phone support is possible, as is on-site consultancy.
Yes. If you email us at [email protected] We would be delighted to supply you with examples of reports.
Prudent businesses are committed to investing in the development of people and organisations.
SPICE Reporting tools provide measures of business impact from investment in development through simple and accessible infographics to support boots on the ground business practice.
It’s true, conventionally impact measurement from people development rarely happens. SPICE Reporting tools have been designed to provide easy, convenient measures of business impact.
Certainly such perceptions are important. But how would it be, if you could have a raft of easily accessible information that informed your view, providing an evidence-base for you to make important business decisions?
Exactly right! The SPICE Tools overall are what might be described as ‘multi-factoral’. In other words, from the assessment of need to the measurement of impact, they are used to ask and seek answers to questions in a consistent manner, yielding data that informs the measurement of impact.
At the heart of SPICE Reporting are simple, clear infographics that communicate complex information related to performance and impact into the hands of users and into team dashboards.
Of course, people are what really matter. This is why the SPICE Tools have been created, to support development through simple, accessible, people-focused information that connects people to performance.
Yes. In fact infographics from SPICE Results are there to help businesses make decisions not just about people but about business development more generally.
The frequency of use is really a business decision. We recommend regular use to help inform both business as well as people development.
