Intelligent Behaviour Analytics® (IBA)

Intelligent Behaviour Analytics (IBA®)

IBA® is a sophisticated framework which enables individuals to explore their Concept of Self in a meaningful way which is unique to them. It is based on the idea that developing an enhanced level of self-understanding provides significant value for individuals both at and away from work, individually or within a team.

It forms the basis of our MSc module on: 

Understanding and Managing Behaviours of Self, Teams and Organisations.

About IBA®

IBA® uses key components from the itse® framework as well as drawing upon the latest scholarly articles for understanding and managing behaviours of self, teams and organisations, encapsulating this so that the student acquires the necessary knowledge, skills, attitude and behaviour to become a world class leader, fit for the 21st Century.

IBA® is designed to enhance participants’ self-knowledge or concept of self, described within the itse® framework as ‘Self-Understanding’. Improvements in Self-Understanding can lead to better understanding of others and uplifts in effectiveness and professionalism. A fundamental tenet of IBA® is that it starts with the individual, since the success of the individual inevitably affects the success of the team.

IBA® focuses on individual strengths, and provides knowledge and skills for each individual to realise their goals. It is designed to achieve sustainable outcomes for both individuals and teams in a manner that is compassionate and at the same time determined, real, practical and sustainable.

Benefits of IBA®

IBA® has been used successfully with individuals and teams within a range of diverse environments, including education, healthcare and business. It is proven to increase individual confidence and resilience.

The success of the IBA® framework has led to the development of Itse®, a new online learning tool, which will be launched in 2021.

“IBA has made me think differently about how to lead and manage my team and also how we develop our staff. So taken by the principles and the academic underpinning of IBA, I have been motivated to apply to start a PhD using IBA as the vehicle to better define, understand and improve the self-awareness, emotional intelligence and leadership of the military.”
