The CPA (Career Path Appreciation), based on the Matrix of Working Relationships (MWR), is an interview methodology designed to identify an individual’s capability to work at predetermined levels of complexity both at the time of the interview and at specified times in the future.
During the 1-on-1 interview a candidate has an opportunity to explore and reflect on his/her career, their aspirations, the type of work that they find challenging and stimulating, and elements of work that frustrate them. The CPA Practitioner arrives at an understanding of the type of work that challenges and stimulates the candidate at present (we refer to this as FLOW) as well as how this is likely to develop and mature over time.
The CPA provides the individual and the organisation with information about how individuals prefer to approach work and decision making, and how this will change and develop in the future, within the context of different themes of work. The CPA process is founded on the principles of the Matrix of Working Relationships (MWR) theory.
The MCPATM (Modified Career Path Appreciation) is an internet-based computerised version of the CPA – a labour-saving alternative for the full process which can be carried out across time zones and in circumstances as geographically separate as current technology will allow.
