Value Tool

The Assignment Value Tool is a software tool for measuring the value, and understanding the business drivers, of an international assignment based on a methodology developed by the ETF.

It uses questionnaires for 3 key assignment stakeholders – the host business, the corporation and the employee – to establish the ‘value-facets’ of an assignment; effectively its KPIs.

These are summarised in various ways: as a value profile; as business drivers behind the assignment; in 3- dimensional form on a ‘Value Triangle’ where the value of many assignments can be viewed and compared.

Business priorities can be used to weight to individual value facets. Follow-up questionnaires are used to establish ‘success’ in delivering on the KPI value targets. A number of charts and more detailed forms of analysis are used to reveal areas where assignments fall short of expectations.
