The KAI inventory is a measure of how one prefers to solve problems, either more adaptively or more innovatively. Because one's KAI score has no relationship with one's intelligence, learned skills, motivation, culture, ethnicity, and many other measures of capacity, it is a useful tool for uncovering why teams may not function well.
KAI is widely hailed as one of the most robust and insightful measures available to management and team-building experts. KAI is a measure of problem-solving style, using a continuum, ranging from more adaptive to more innovative.
From its original academic background, KAI has been widely adopted by management consultants and HR professionals. KAI is used extensively in corporations and organizations around the world, including universities and military training centers.
KAI provides insight into how people solve problems and interact with others while making decisions. This enables you to improve the dynamics and output of your teams, while reducing stress and improving productivity. Understanding differences in problem-solving style empowers you to offer effective leadership, by enabling personnel to work in their preferred style.
