Ideal Task Profile Questionnaire (ITPQ)

Highlight the team roles required for organisational success

ITPQ is part of the Type Mapping system. It provides insight into which role behaviours would be most useful to ‘grow’ to meet current challenges. Most individuals and teams, even the successful ones, can be a little slow to recognise when the pattern they have developed no longer meets the needs of the situation. By identifying these early people can recognise, adjust and fine tune behaviours which will lead to better outcomes. It uses the same eight role behaviours as identified in the MTRi thus allowing a gap analysis between ‘What I (or the team) are doing’ versus ‘What I (or the team) should be doing’. Once identified, this makes adapting and changing to more appropriate behaviour significantly easier.

Test Details and Sample Reports

The ITPQ™ provides a baseline for all aspects of team and group development, at all levels within organisations. It forms part of the Type Mapping System which allows personal preferences to be mapped onto team roles and aligned with organisational imperatives.

Organisations often face testing times, but there is little available for analysing the link between current challenges and team input.

The Ideal Task Profile Questionnaire (ITPQ™) uses Psychological Type to define the range of important contributions that can be made in a team. It then solicits the key behaviours required to make it happen. No other behavioural questionnaire approaches performance issues so directly.

It uses the same team role descriptors (Clarifying, Activating, Harmonising etc) as the MTR-i™.

The ITPQ™ is part of an integrated approach to improving team performance that links personality, behaviour and performance challenge. As such it can be used with its sister questionnaire, the Managing Team Roles Indicator (MTR-i™), and all versions of the Type Dynamics Indicator®.
