Assessment Centres: Unlocking potential for growth
Sandra Schlebusch and Gert Roodt
Publishing Date: 8-Mar
SELECT VERSION BELOW (Print | E-Book ...)
Assessment Centre technology has the potential to provide a platform for firstly, diagnosing potential candidates’ management potential and secondly, training these candidates and developing their management capabilities.
Assessment Centre technology has the advantage of simultaneously providing training and development and hands-on management experience based on realistic simulations. Assessment Centres are widely underestimated as a vehicle for providing needs-based management training and developing.
There is currently no South African book on the market in this area. The book is based on the logic and sound theoretical principles of the Design Model. The Design Model provides the basis for systematically covering the analysis, design, implementation and the evaluation stages in the Assessment Centre development process.
The Design Model is also superimposed on program evaluation principles where each stage of the model can be evaluated against predetermined criteria.
The book also:
· Focuses on a range of critical practical considerations for running an Assessment Centre
· Features chapters on international current practices and future trends by renowned international authors such as Krause and Thornton
· Includes a set of Guidelines from the Assessment Centre Study Group to Assessment Practitioners
· Covers the SA historical development of Assessment Centres
It is a ‘how to’ book that focuses on practical execution.
