Prior to Wiley purchasing Inscape Publishing in Everything DiSC has formality been know as Inscape Publishing, Carlson Learning Company, a division of the Minneapolis-based Carlson Companies. Carlson Learning was created in 1984, after Carlson Companies purchased Performax Systems International. It was at that time the Carlson made the decision to develop a user-friendly self-scoring and self-interpreting DiSC® assessment for the commercial marketplace. Carlson Learning made important revision of the DiSC instrument in 1994, updating it with new language, research, and validation. This resulted in a 28 question DiSC survey rather than the 24 question model still used by other companies offering the older 24 question format that is still used by many of our competitors.
Everything DiSC is the leading publisher and developer of instrument-bases learning tools. They have developed assessments and learning products in 21 languages, which are offered in more than 50 countries. Over 41 million people have used Inscape products to meet their needs through out the world. Inscape is the first company to commercialize instrumented-learning, not only with the DiSC, but with a complete catalog of instrument-based learning tools.
Everything DiSC / Inscape Publishing has refined the art of administering online using adaptive testing in some of its profiles. They have integrated assessments and training materials using the most current technologies for just in time delivery along with the blending of constantly monitored and improved products based on “best practices” models from some of the today’s most respected companies, In 2003, Inscape released EPIC, an online assessment-delivery system. EPIC allows trainers to send assessments as pre-work and print participant assessments prior to training sessions — freeing up costly training time for training to focus on training. In addition, EPIC increases Inscape’s ability to create highly personalized products. Today, more than half of all of our assessments are completed online via EPIC. Inscape has remained a company that continues to invest in research and brings new, cutting edge training assessments and materials to market on a regular basis.
