How Career Anchors was Developed and Tested
Developed by Edgar Schein at MIT's Sloan School of Management, the Career Anchors Self-Assessment has become the industry standard since it was originally created more than forty years ago.
The career anchor concept and job/role planning came out of a longitudinal career research and organizational consulting that began in the 1960s and continues to this day. The concepts and tools evolved from several decades of research on a panel of MIT's Sloan School graduates, followed by intensive studies of various occupational groups, both in the United States and internationally. The original career anchor was published in book format and has been translated into other languages. It has been translated into many languages and used in Europe, Latin America, and Asia around the world spread to Europe.
