Can you identify the disruptive
talent in your business?

Talent management

Who are your game changers?

Designed and validated by internationally renowned academic psychologists, META’s Disruptive Talent is a psychometric measure designed to help businesses identify, understand and retain people with the ability to drive business innovation.

Disruptive innovation threatens every business in every sector and happens with increasing frequency and speed. The only effective response to the threat is to build the capacity to innovate yourself.

Use Disruptive Talent to...

  • Recruit and select people with the potential to generate, execute and lead business innovation
  • Identify the hidden disruptive talent in your organisation and provide a framework for its development
  • Build high-performing teams, ensuring the best possible combination of people in order to maximise creative thinking, innovation and growth

Organisational development

How entrepreneurial is your organisation?

The natural cycle of most organisations is from innovation and opportunism, via growth, to protection, atrophy, crisis and, ultimately, either extinction or transformation.

The measure of a truly competitive organisation is the extent to which it can break this cycle; the extent to which, regardless of size, it remains entrepreneurial.

META-Culture is a 45 item measure of the key characteristics of the entrepreneurial organisation.

Use Meta-culture to...

  • Identify the drivers and blockers of entrepreneurial behaviours in your organisation
  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of key teams (including leadership teams)
  • Create internal benchmarks which drive best practice

Identifying tomorrow's entrepreneurs

Billions of dollars flow into start-ups every year and only a relatively small percentage of those businesses go on to success.

How can investors improve their chances of finding the great businesses of tomorrow? META is the only scientific tool able to identify entrepreneurial talent and predict entrepreneurial success.

Use Meta to...

  • Select people with genuine entrepreneurial potential
  • Develop their potential: building on strengths, managing weaknesses, and increasing self-awareness
  • Build entrepreneurial teams – put together the right combination of talents to maximise the chances of success

Emerging economies

Entrepreneurs in emerging economies

Entrepreneurial activity is vital to economic growth and employment in developing countries but while emerging and developing economies have a large number of micro-firms and some large firms, they have far fewer growth-oriented Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) than are found in developed economies.

Key to developing this ‘missing middle’ is the identification of people with the potential, not just to start businesses, but to rapidly grow them and to employ others. META is the only scientific tool specifically designed to identify entrepreneurial potential and predict entrepreneurial success and it has been validated with people from over 25 different countries.

Use Meta to...

  • Identify people with the potential, not just to start businesses but to grow them
  • Benchmark them against global norms
  • Develop their potential: building on strengths, managing weaknesses, and increasing self-awareness
