What is EPIC?
One of the most exciting things to come from Inscape Publishing (now part of Wiley) is a platform called EPIC (Electronic Profile Information Center). EPIC provides a simple way to deliver a variety of profiles via the Internet. Here's how it works: from a PC, you'll have access to all of the online profiles. Someone can administer access codes that allow people to complete the assessments online. Once a respondent finishes answering the questions, the resulting report goes to the respondent, you or whoever is designated - you decide!
What can EPIC do for you?
With less time and more to do, the commitment to organizational development is more important than ever. Helping employees develop interpersonal skills allows them to work more effectively as individuals and team members, and increased effectiveness improves productivity and grows the bottom line. EPIC can help deliver learning throughout an organization in less time for greater impact. Through EPIC, organizations can use their training time more effectively by capitalizing on the advantages of technology. Employees can complete their online assessments before training sessions, ensuring that every minute of training time is used to its full advantage. Plus, the EPIC system takes care of scoring the profiles, saving time and increasing accuracy.
Gain Administrative Control
The EPIC system also offers advanced functionality that permits system administrators to track various activities, including their system use and the number of profiles completed. Through EPIC, administrators can also view, print, or email completed reports, as the system maintains an archive of completed profiles.
Offer Enhanced Report Options
Introduce deeper levels of interpretation through the EPIC platform. The EPIC system offers reports and features not available on Inscape Publishing's paper profiles ranging from composite group reports from data stored in the system, providing an analysis of team dynamics even as teams change.
Everything DiSC® Programs
Over the past a few years, Inscape launched Everything DiSC®, its third-generation applications that combine online assessment, classroom facilitation, and post-training follow-up reports to create powerful, personalized workplace development experiences. Group and facilitator reports that are available are 25 EPIC credits each. Here are the assessments available:
Based on the work and the book by Patrick Lencioni, The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ assessment and accompanying material is designed for an intact team. The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ is an assessment-based learning experience that helps individuals and organizations reveal what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team in the most approachable, competent, and effective way possible. Powered by the online Everything DiSC® the profile helps each participant understand their own DiSC style, their team members' styles and how their style contributes to the team's overall success. The program helps teams understand how, as a team, they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model.
Use EPIC Credits For All Profiles
The EPIC platform uses "credits" to purchase the profiles/reports. A great benefit of EPIC is that the credits are interchangeable among all the online EPIC products! Skill development products available on EPIC (Sample reports are available on pages of the specific profiles): Each of these assessments are 10 EPIC credits each, and group and facilitator reports that are available are 15 EPIC credits each
