Assessment tools - Background

All our assessment tools come from the ViewSuite range, developed and published by ConsultingTools.

The ViewSuite tools were developed by ConsultingTools USA (now Envisia Learning, based in California), headed up by Dr Kenneth M Nowack, a US-licensed psychologist and Co-Founder, President and Chief Research Officer of Envisia. Ken Nowack has over twenty years of experience in the development and validation of assessment instruments, organisational surveys, questionnaires, simulations, and tests. He has conducted research and published extensively in the areas of 360° feedback, stress management, executive coaching, assessment centres, training needs assessment, and evaluation. He is the author of numerous assessment instruments and interactive software programs and is a member of Daniel Goleman's Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organisations.

Why do we favour these particular tools? Maximum Performance (the majority shareholders in Iceberg) were asked by one of their biggest clients to recommend a 360° feedback tool. After much research they identified the ViewSuite range as undoubtedly the best on the market. So impressed were they that they entered a strategic business partnership with ConsultingTools UK, a successful collaboration that resulted in the launch of Iceberg.

ConsultingTools UK was launched in 2001 to provide products and services for consultants and business professionals working with individuals, teams and organisations. ConsultingTools publish a range of tools in the UK which are sold through licensed distributors around the world (Iceberg is the distributor for the UK business market). The company is ISO9001-accredited and a member of the British Test Publishers Association.
