PIP For Managers is a continuation of the PIP approach. The manager’s inventory is divided into sections, with statements included in each section. The scoring procedure is the same as used before. Read each statement, giving yourself a “5” if the statement is almost always true for you as a manager, a “4” if it is usually true for you as a manager, a “3” if it is sometimes true, a “2” if it is seldom true, and a “1” if it is almost never true for you as a manager.
Each section includes three statements. Add together your self-ratings for each statement and divide by “3”. This will give you an average score for that section. Once you have completed all sections, add together all of the average scores and divide by the total number of sections. This will give you a managerial quotient. Your goal should be to achieve a managerial quotient of at least 4.5.
Although the inventory is intended for managers within organizations, it will also be useful for individuals who manage families, community organizations, and small groups. It will be also useful for those who wish to evaluate individuals in managerial positions.
You will note that the first six sections represent managerial priorities, while the last seven sections represent managerial processes. It may be useful for you to calculate your sub-quotient for the combined “priorities” area and for the combined “processes” area. This will help you evaluate your managerial strengths both in terms of assuring organizational priorities and assuring that the necessary processes are occurring that will lead to actualization of those priorities.
