This presentation focuses on a semi-structured interview method based on constructive developmental psychology. Constructive developmental psychology, which is a branch of adult developmental theory, has been gradually applied in the business industry to evaluate employees' performance and competence.

Japanese corporations are facing difficulties in assessing employees' performance and competence by old-fashioned evaluation systems. Comparing with those old models, this presentation covers the advantage and implication of the interview method based on constructive developmental psychology. Especially, this presentation will delve into the "Subject-Object Interview" by Prof. Robert Kegan at Harvard Graduation School of Education.
