Assessment Centres and Development Centres
Research has shown that work sample or job simulation assessments are highly valid predictors of on-the-job success, while ability tests provide insight into an individual's aptitude and future potential.

An Assessment or Development Centre essentially combines a variety of such methods to provide a comprehensive methodology to assess individuals, especially in large numbers and group-based environments, against selected competencies for selection and/or development.

In Assessment or Development Centres, candidates typically go through a combination of the following:
Psychometric tests
Work simulation exercises
Competency based interview
360° feedback questionnaire
All of the tools provide behavioural evidence to determine whether the candidate measures up against the competencies desired for the organisation or the position.

The Assessment and Development Centre methodology can help clients make selection, training and development decisions clearer and more accurate. These include:
To assess, identify and understand individual and organisational strengths and limitations.
To identify the shift in key competencies required after merger or restructure.
To recognise where the talent pools lie for succession planning.
Hence, selection, training and development decisions become much clearer and more accurate.
