Integrity Profiling Instrument - MIMOS & IIM
Following a successful launching of its Corporate Integrity System recently, the Malaysian Institute of Integrity (IIM) introduced another landmark integrity instrument, which was developed by one of its strategic partners. Premised on the principle of Psychometrics, the Integrity Profiling Instrument is a research product of MIMOS (Malaysian Institute of Microelectronics Systems)which is focussing on measuring the integrity of individuals. What is interesting about the instrument is the inclusion of two new variables, making it a Malaysian-Based integrity instrument. The product was introduced by Dr Haniza Yon, Lead Researcher and Director of the Psychometrics Centre at MIMOS at a half-day function yesterday, organized by the Private Sector Division of the Malaysian Institute of Integrity. As a Psychometrician herself, Dr Haniza has wide experience in the development of latent variables. Prior to joining MIMOS, Dr Haniza was a lead researcher in one of a leading evaluation companies in the United States of America. The event was well attended by researchers and industry players. The Private Sector Director, Mr Mohd Nizam Mohd Ali has initiated numerous private sector initiatives with different strategic partners involving academia and the industry.
