Hogan's Testing Methodology

Hogan methodology is based in 3 main assessments: – Hogan Personality
Inventory (HPS), Hogan Development Survey (HDS) and the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory
(MVPI) – all of these complement each other together with an optional fourth assessment, the
Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI). Each one analyzes very particular traits and by combining these we are able to generate a large amount of specific tailored reports for companies. Also within the Hogan Development Survey
