what is the Birkman Method®

The Birkman Method® was developed in the late 1940s while Roger W. Birkman, a former WWII pilot, was working with a group of scientists at the University of Texas surveying potentially useful psychological instruments for pilot selection for the US Air Force.

Roger Birkman conceptualized, developed, and refined the Birkman as part of his dissertation under the guidance, direction, and tutelage of the highly skilled professional psychologists, statisticians, and psychometricians at the University of Texas. His ideas were a blend of current vocational, psychological, and job performance methodology.

The Birkman Method® has been in use for more than 50 years and has been used by more than 2.5 million people & 5,000 organizations worldwide, including corporations, not for profit organizations, governmental agencies & individuals. The assessment accurately measures social behaviours, underlying expectations of interpersonal and task actions, potential stress reactions to unmet expectations, occupational preferences and organizational strengths.

Integrated – Only Birkman combines behavioral, motivational and interest measurements in a single assessment. It features one system with one language to perform all levels of your human development work, replacing the need to use multiple tools.
