Q) If a company is using a simple psychological appraisal method and it is working, why would it have a need for a more comprehensive method?

To say that something is working is a relative statement. In the 30s and 40s, radio worked and it still does. Yet beginning in the 50s, the invention of television plainly worked better. The very idea /invention of television is more advanced and comprehensive than radio. Now television did not altogether replace radio, but in most ways it takes us further.

Similarly, with appraising people, the stakes are so high, making the right “people decisions” so crucial, that we need an appraisal method that goes beyond the state-of-the-art of the 70s and 80s.

In the competitive climate of today, we need to be asking, “is there a method that works better… that facilitates clearer, more far reaching insight… that can significantly increase our odds, and confidence in making our most important business decisions?”

People are not so simple. People are comprehensive. Thus, to appraise people effectively, we cannot rely solely on simple methods. We need a method that can appraise people comprehensively.
