Scoring:

 

To calculate your score, reverse your score for item 12 (1=7, 2=6, etc.).  Then add up all of your responses for your total.

.

 

Analysis & Interpretation:

 

This instrument has been designed to tap into dimensions associated with success as an

international executive. These include general intelligence, business knowledge,

interpersonal skills, commitment, courage, cross-cultural competencies, and the ability to

learn from experience.

 

Total scores will fall between 14 and 98. The higher your score, the greater your potential

for success as an international manager. While the authors of this instrument provided no

specific cutoffs, it seems reasonable to assume that scores of 70 or higher indicate

relatively strong potential for success in a global management position.
