Successfully Evaluating Candidate Skills with Assessment Centers – What exactly is an assessment center?
The evaluation of an individual’s potential to perform in a managerial capacity is an important problem for those responsible for the development of managers. Making a mistake can costs tens of thousands of dollars. In order to make an effective assessment, we need more detailed information than that obtained through traditional methods. The qualifications needed for management responsibilities differ from those needed on non-management assignments. An assessment center is a means of gathering relevant information, under standardized conditions, about an individual’s capabilities to perform a managerial position.
