The Intercultural Development Inventory
Intercultural Development Inventory
The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) is an assessment that organizations can use to measure the intercultural competence within their workplaces. Intercultural competence refers to the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behaviour to partake in meaningful and intercultural interactions. After the assessment is completed, IDI generates a profile of the organization’s intercultural competence. Moreover, IDI develops an Intercultural Development Plan to assist in the transition from a monocultural mindset, which includes stages of denial and polarization, to an intercultural mindset, which includes stages of acceptance and adaptation. Organizations that use the IDI include Microsoft, Target, the Canadian Federal Government, and the Boeing Company.
