BIA's proprietary TBA methodology incorporates the psychology of how people disclose information. Applying the BIA methodology enables you to formulate more strategic questions and ask questions in unpredictable and non-confrontational ways to avoid repetitive and rehearsed answers. The methodology results give a clearer understanding of management’s true level of confidence to close information gaps.
BIA looks at management disclosures through a different lens, using behavioral analysis to yield new insight into management's level of conviction and concerns on a range of topics. You can then make more informed decisions based on the BIA assessment of the completeness and responsiveness of management statements.

Behavioral analysis attempts to understand, explain, describe and predict what people do and say. BIA’s approach to behavioral analysis relies on a strict analysis, based on a proprietary methodology. These behaviors are gender, cultural and language neutral.
