Multiple Intelligences

Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory was first published in Howard Gardner’s book, Frames Of Mind (1983), and quickly became established as a classical model by which to understand and teach many aspects of human intelligence, learning style, personality and behavior – in education and industry. Howard Gardner initially developed his ideas and theory on multiple intelligences as a contribution to psychology, however Gardner’s theory was soon embraced by education, teaching and training communities, for whom the appeal was immediate and irresistible – a sure sign that Gardner had created a classic reference work and learning model.

The Multiple Intelligence’s concepts and VAK (or VARK or VACT) learning styles models offer relatively simple and accessible methods to understand and explain people’s preferred ways to learn and develop.

In the case of the Multiple Intelligence model, and arguably to greater extent VAK (because VAK is such a simple model), remember that these concepts and tools are aids to understanding overall personality, preferences and strengths – which will almost always be a mixture in each individual person


Data Mining

Data mining is the process of analysing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information. It allows users to analyse data from many different dimensions or angles, categorize it, and summarize the relationships identified. Technically, data mining is the process of finding correlations or patterns among dozens of fields in large relational databases. The role of Human Resource (HR) professionals in organizations has evolved parallel to business-related technological advances. HR professionals are now able to dedicate more time to strategic business decisions as the development of technology has allowed for the automation of many transactional HR processes. While HR professionals may no longer need to manage the manual processing of data, they should not abandon their ties to data collected on and about the organization’s employees. The human resources data that is available within organizations has the potential to help support their decision-making processes. The challenge is identifying useful information in vast human resources databases that are the result of the automation of HR-related transaction processing.
