The DASA is the first dedicated measure of an individual's capacity to self-regulate and make sound decisions - often important facets in the process of selection, development and coaching.
Unlike tests of ability (measuring what people can do) or personality (measuring what they believe and value, or how they behave), the DASA measures how people actively manage themselves and make their own choices.
