Research and Surveys

PROGILENCE undertakes various types of research and studies related to human capital development. These include:

Market Studies

The market studies may be commissioned to uncover insight and collect information regarding current practices, contextual factors, prevailing views and opinions, stakeholder mapping, etc. related to employability, skills, education, learning and development practices, etc. These may be primary and/or secondary studies.

Impact Assessment Studies

These are post-intervention studies carried out to assess impact of training, learning and development, and other interventions. These services include a comprehensive study with establishing baselines, scoping objectives and expectations, and evaluating and categorising impact. We deconstruct programmes for arriving at attribution, causal and intervening factors. We use understanding of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) in our study construct.

Skills Gap Studies

We conduct skills gap studies based on sector, geography, market segment, or an occupational focus area as may be required. These gaps may be between industry demand and supply at the recruitment level, or of existing incumbents in employment. The skills gaps can be conducted for government bodies, industry bodies or individual organisations. These are highly detailed, primary research studies supported by secondary data.

Primary Research on Needs and Capabilities

PROGILENCE carries out Needs and Capability studies that are focused on identifying requirements, opportunities, limitations and strategies for human capital development at individual, team, organisational, industry and national levels. These studies provide insight into baselines of existing capabilities, and potential capacity for delivery of targeted capabilities.

Benchmarking studies

PROGILENCE carries out benchmarking studies in the area of skills and performance. These may be to benchmark within the organisation, across the industry or sector, etc. These may include survey of industry practices in training and development, such as time allocated, resource spend, focus areas, tools and methodologies used, etc.
