    BOSTON, Mass – May 9, 2019 – Business leaders agree that their biggest business problems are people problems. In fact, a recent study revealed that a CEO’s top challenge is finding the right talent, and four of the top five biggest CEO challenges pertain to talent optimization—a new discipline that aligns people strategy with business strategy for maximum business results.

    To provide leaders with a framework and knowledge base to elevate their people strategy and get the most out of their people, The Predictive Index announced the Talent Optimization Certification. Passing the certification demonstrates a deep understanding of the talent optimization discipline and how it can be used to:


    • Measure, analyze, and act on people data to identify and solve the root causes of business problems
    • Create and continuously grow and optimize a people strategy
    • Use a data-driven approach to hire high-performing talent and build world-class teams
    • Apply best practices to develop leaders and improve how people work together together
