Description

Assessment and Development Centres offer a detailed and objective way of assessing your people's potential, whether you are trying to: ¢ establish training and development needs ¢ identify potential for promotion ¢ assess and select new recruits to your organization or using the centre in some other way. To make this assessment possible involves a huge investment in time, money and effort to plan, design, administer and run each centre and to effectively analyse and use all of the data it will generate. These three volumes are designed to help you set up and run your own assessment and development centres within your organization. Alternatively, if you already run centres, the manuals will allow you to evaluate and improve your administration, planning and assessment as well as to introduce new exercises. Volume 2: Assessment Activities contains full documentation for the participants, the assessors and the programme manager for running a range of assessment simulations of: ¢ meetings where co-operation is called for ¢ meetings where participants have conflicting aims ¢ activities where participants must plan for contingencies and handle interruptions ¢ presentations and talks ¢ one-to-one interviews ¢ report and proposal writing exercises. Other volumes: Volume 1 Planning and Administration Volume 3 In-Tray Simulations Each volume is available separately or as a three volume set.
