“We used Judgement Index as a key part of a Senior Management Development programme as it effectively measured the core aspects of effective leadership in a way that was simple but incredibly powerful. As a method of identifying high performance, and behaviour in a range of different settings, there are few better tools.” David Murray, Learning & Development Manager, Shepherd Group

“The Judgement Index was used as part of the selection process for the Military to Mentors programme, a project run by SkillForce on behalf of the Department for Education as part of the MOD backed Troops for Teachers initiative. In addition to mapping candidate’s competency against our requirements, the Judgement Index gave valuable insights into their wellbeing and resilience also. This enabled us to make an informed risk assessment of their ability to cope with stress, an essential requirement given that many candidates had active operational experience and would be working with very challenging young people who were at risk of exclusion from the school system.
In total over 150 candidates were screened over a 9 month period. The quality of the candidates that were selected for Military to Mentors has been evident in the high number that have successfully made the transition into employment within the education sector working for schools colleges and SkillForce itself.” James Moore, Project Manager – Military Mentors
“I was first introduced to Judgement Index (JI) in 2008 when serving in the British Army and Commanding the Operational Training Advisory Group (OPTAG), charged with delivery predeployment/mission specific training to all soldiers and Royal Marines bound for Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo and Georgia.
Having suspected some issues with one of my more high functioning teams, I asked Rob Coulthard (MD of JI) to assist. After a 20 minute on-line questionnaire, entirely anonymous as far as Rob was concerned, he was able not only to identify the problem areas, assess the underlying issues but to suggest highly effective coping strategies for those concerned. That team was functioning to full capacity within two weeks and this was entirely down to JI. In addition his assessment correctly identified one of the subjects who was suffering from post operational strain and our early intervention enabled us to minimise the effect on the individual and rehabilitate him rapidly.
Determined to find out more about this impressive tool, I researched other projects that Rob had undertaken with Royal Marines, aircrew, and the winning Royal Navy Rugby team of 2010. I subsequently used JI for assembling and maintaining military teams and for developmental work within them. I was also able to recommend their implementation into the UK Sport, the Great Britain Olympic yachting teams (RYA) and the English RFU. All of these have started or are about to start utilising Rob’s programmes. All this has led me to recommend JI to my own company as the assessment and development tool of choice for a company of 68,000 personnel world-wide.” Colonel (Retired) RJ Westley OBE MC
