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 cognitive style, using a continuum of Adaption and Innovation.

Developed over the past 40 years, Adaption-Innovation (A-I) Theory and KAI have an unrivaled pedigree in the field of cognitive style, supported by over 340 referenced articles and 100 post-graduate theses.

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 many universities and military training centers.

KAI provides you with insight into how people solve problems and interact while making decisions. This enables you to improve the dynamics and output of your teams, while reducing stress and improving productivity.

Understanding differences in cognitive style empowers you to offer effective leadership, by enabling personnel to work in their preferred style. This reduces stress, increases efficiency, and improves the working environment for all your people.

Understanding and acting on cognitive style will help you to retain the best staff, and get better performance from your teams.
