I have some data I've collected. Here are the relevant characteristics:

  • Question: 'What strategic priorities is your company pursuing over the next 18 to 36 months?'
  • Survey takers choose from a number of answers such as 'improving employee engagement' or 'expanding into new markets'.
  • Question:'What leadership competencies are most needed to successfully achieve your strategic priorities?'
  • Survey takers choose from a number of answers such as 'staffing and selection' or 'coaching'.

I want to see whether talent management priorities (competencies) vary by strategic focus. i.e. Do folks with different strategic focuses have different competency priorities? I'm not sure how I would go about testing that.


As I understand your question, you want a 'test' to find out the relation between two variable: Talent Management Priority and Strategy Focus. I would recommend chi-square test, which is used to test the dependency between two categorical variables.
