Saaki, Argus & Averil


The art of identifying best-fit comes naturally only to a select few. So we took it upon ourselves to make this art a scientific process. Three distinct process stages emerged. It is the core process stage that makes the real difference. It’s what we call the MATCHbox ®.

Need-Fit Analysis

So you have a requirement- it could be for a CXO or a standard middle management replacement. Or let's say you're a potential candidate and you're looking for some new challenges. When you come to us we would take in all your inputs and then ask you “why?”. And some times “why not?”. While it might sound counter-intiutive, it has given quite a number of our clients and candidates the advantage of making hiring decisions with a higher degree of clarity.

Our Need-Fit Analysis covers the following aspects:

• Context Analysis
• Profile Analysis
• Work Analysis
• Cost-Benefit Analysis

We deploy the appropriate analysis as per the requirement. We can assure you this stage of the process does not add any extra timelines unless you would like to- and many of our clients have wisely chosen to invest time at this stage.

The MATCHbox ®

The MATCHbox is a Persona Model, which operates at the cusp of a Need-Fit analysis of the client and the candidate- the real bridge that connects the right candidate to the right requirement.

MATCHbox consists of 4 Personas that can be applied to any position across the organisation including leadership positions:

• The Visionary
• The Integrator
• The Specialist
• The Pioneer

Typically we slot requirements and candidates into the appropriate personas and look for the right fit. This gives us an output for the candidate and the requirement across the archetype. Since no requirement or candidate will squarely fit into a particular slot what we look for is a distribution and bias.

Our proprietary weighted scoring helps us to zero-in on the best fit within the MATCHbox. While these are the broad personas we work with, on certain occasions we also create unique personas that work in context.
