Gap Performance Survey (GPS) Overview

Objective and Need

 The Gap Performance Survey (GPS) is a customer-driven feedback process in which, Biotech and/or Pharmaceutical organization’s customer-facing personnel are evaluated based on a set of criteria developed by BCA and the Client.  The GPS differs from typical personality or style assessments, as well as syndicated assessments in that the feedback measures actual knowledge and competencies specific to the Client’s desired attributes and skills.

The GPS feedback data helps the Client’s understanding regarding their customer-facing personnel in the following four areas:

  1. Identification of strengths and areas for improvement
  2. Setting of specific goals to address gaps in the measurement dimensions
  3. Determination of the action steps for skill and knowledge enhancement
  4. Adjustment of Business/Account/Market plans to better meet customers’ needs
