Activity Vector Analysis (AVA) is a work-related system of behavioral assessment tools widely recognized for its accuracy, validity, simplicity, and utility. AVA provides the “why” behind behavior in the workplace, enabling you to hire, coach and develop employees to their best possible performance. When you understand why people do what they do, you can place them in the right jobs and motivate them optimally to achieve results. AVA profiles an individual’s workplace behavioral tendencies, the behavioral demands of specific jobs, and the fit between the two. The key tools used in the AVA system are the individual analysis, the job activity rating, and the WebAVA.
