01/31/2007 - Triangle Welcomes Management Technologies, Inc.

Management Technologies, Inc. is a human resources consulting group now located at 418 East Pacific, Suite 2. Started in Billings, Montana in 1979, they relocated to the Spokane area in 1981. According to Pat Powers, President, Management Technologies does business nationally and recently found that, more and more, they were doing business “virtually”. Instead of lots of office space, they needed the high-speed redundant connectivity available in the Terabyte Triangle.

Management Technologies primary human resources tool is the “Personalysis Management System.” The Personalysis system profiles an individual based on a completed Personalysis questionnaire. The questionnaire, now Internet based, is self-administered and takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. From the results of the questionnaire, it can be determined how the individual likes to be managed, how they will manage others, and what type of work best fits their strengths, what positive motivators are, and what causes stress. Personalysis does not test aptitude, education, training, or IQ.

Following completion of the Personalysis questionnaire, a 14-page report and a CD is generated. Part of the report is a graphic showing the results of the questionnaire in a colorful graphical way. The colors – red, yellow, green, and blue – show, in skewed parallelograms, just what a person likes to do, and how they manage others. A second graphic indicates how a person likes to be managed. A third indicates motivational and emotional needs. These graphs are always shared with the employee, and existing employees are urged to share them with each other. Personalysis is intended to be informational, not judgmental. The CEO of Litehouse Foods displays his personal graphic on the bulletin board in his office.

Besides Litehouse Foods, businesses that routinely use Management Technologies and Personalysis include Intel, Seattle V.I. P. Services, Inc., Oregon Electric Group, Sterling Savings, and Global Credit Union. Personalysis helps achieve the best from each employee, reduce turnover, facilitate team-building, and manage stress.

Management Technologies offers a variety of other management services in addition to the Personalysis assessment. These services include workshops and seminars, consulting in conflict resolution, succession planning, and public speaking. Based on their twenty-one years of experience, they conduct management workshops and sales workshops. They make presentations at conventions and meetings. They help individuals and institutions with career planning, and help with employee retention. For a full list of workshops, seminars, and services, visit the Management Technologies Web site: www.manatechwa.com.

According to Powers, Management Technologies still has retained their very first client after twenty-nine years. All of their new business comes from referrals. “We help people and companies build successful relationship between the company and the people who work within the company,” says Powers. “We help people relate to other people, and people relate to the job.”

To contact Management Technologies, Inc. call (509) 922-4577 or e-mail ppowers@manatechwa.com.
