IDI for Individuals

Intercultural Development Inventory Assessment

Cultural Competence Assessment for Individuals

What is Intercultural Competence?

lntercultural competence is the ability to function effectively across cultures, to think and act appropriately, and to communicate and work with people from different cultural backgrounds. Intercultural competence is a valuable asset for increasingly globalized workplaces where we are more likely to interact with people from different cultures and countries whom different values, beliefs and experiences have shaped.

Why choose the IDI?

The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) is the leading cross-cultural assessment of intercultural competence used by thousands of individuals to build intercultural competence to achieve international and domestic diversity and inclusion goals and outcomes. The results are actionable. The results are practical. The results are developmental.

What Is Involved?

The IDI is a 50-item questionnaire that requires approximately 10–20 minutes to complete. The IDI tool generates profiles of an individual’s capability for shifting cultural perspective and adapting behaviour toward cultural differences and commonalities—it measures intercultural competence.

The IDI® measures an individual’s level of intercultural sensitivity along the Intercultural Development Continuum®. This is based on the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity, a renowned and widely respected developmental model created by Dr. Milton Bennett. The Intercultural Development Continuum® theorizes that individuals progress through specific phases of development in their understanding of the complexity of cultural similarities and differences. Each position along the continuum represents an increasingly complex understanding of cultural differences, allowing increasingly sophisticated and engaging experiences with people of other cultures.
