Against the backdrop of growing awareness of human capital management and the government’s large-scale budget investment in reskilling, an increasing number of companies are providing their employees with opportunities for education and learning. IT literacy, AI/machine learning, programming languages, network security, AR/VR, etc. are often mentioned, but in reality, many companies have various problems, such as not being able to put them to practical use, or being unable to catch up with understanding and giving up halfway through. I would like to hear your concerns.
One of the causes may be the lack of “skills to acquire new skills”. There are a wide range of comprehension skills, conceptualization skills, practical skills, trial-and-error skills, and improvement skills.
The Biz SCORE series is a diagnostic test that allows you to visualize how much you have acquired a wide range of business skills and knowledge, which are “skills for acquiring new skills”. We have made it possible to visualize the skills and knowledge of employees, which are difficult to judge quantitatively, in the form of scores.

Despite the service, the number of test takers exceeded 1,000. Companies that have introduced the system say, “We were able to grasp the trends of new employees assigned to the workplace in advance, and we were able to provide guidance not only on operations but also on acquiring knowledge and skills during OJT.” One participant said, “As a first-year member of society, I was able to recognize what I had learned and what I needed to improve, and it was an opportunity for me to learn on my own.”

What is the Biz SCORE series?
1. The key to effective training measures is “correct self-awareness” and “understanding of the current situation”
In order for people to grow, it is important to have a correct understanding of their current situation. I tend to think. After correctly understanding what you can and cannot do now, learn what you are lacking and put it into action and practice. People can grow by turning this PDCA cycle. Focusing on “correct self-awareness” and “understanding of the current situation,” we developed the industry’s first* business skill diagnostic test “Biz SCORE Basic” in 2016. Currently, we are developing services by hierarchy, collectively called the Biz SCORE series. *Sitacion Japan research
2. Deploy services by tier for better results
The Biz SCORE series is a test that diagnoses the knowledge and skills necessary to continuously produce the expected results within an organization. By correctly recognizing what is lacking in one’s own abilities, a healthy sense of crisis emerges, which leads to a desire to learn.
(1) Biz SCORE Basic (business skill diagnostic test)
Of the knowledge and skills necessary for business people to continuously produce the expected results, we can comprehensively diagnose the business skills and knowledge that are commonly required regardless of occupation, industry, or position.
(2) Biz SCORE for Managers (management leadership diagnostic test for managers) You can diagnose management and leadership skills based on 20 factors, which are defined based on the results of many managerial trainings. It is certified as the industry’s first* assessment tool that comprehensively measures the abilities of managers. *Surveyed by Japan Marketing Research Organization

Diagnose the skills and knowledge that you should learn on your own or acquire through OJT during your first year as a working adult based on 20 elements. In addition, by encouraging employees to take a test during the period of prospective employment, we can provide an opportunity to notice their own issues and learn quickly before joining the company.
3. Three features of the Biz SCORE series
(1) Ability to comprehend skills comprehensively and objectively We have a track record of supporting 13,000 companies and have accumulated our know-how that handles more than 300 training themes. By visualizing the skills of the examinees themselves using the individual examination result sheet, it is possible to grasp the skill status of each individual at a glance. It can also be used as information for considering training measures. In addition, the results of the examination can be aggregated by individual and organization, which is useful for understanding the current state of organizational strength.
(2) Mechanism for operating the PDCA cycle
For growth, it is important to recognize issues and take concrete actions, rather than just taking a test. In addition to promoting self-awareness based on the results of the test, the appropriate issues can be identified and the goal setting for the next action can be supported.
(3) Review after taking the test
Diagnosis results are delivered within 1 hour after taking the test. Since the results are presented in comparison with “all examinees” and “examinees of the same occupation and age,” you can accurately grasp your position. We will also provide specific future actions based on the trend of scores for each category and theme.
