There is a distinction between selection and development assessments. The former is usually commissioned by companies when there is a vacancy with a predetermined job profile to fill, and the candidate is to be compared with these expectations. The latter will usually assess the current potential of the candidate, in case proposals for further career development are desired, or in the context of a coaching, to clarify whether the candidate can either develop certain expected abilities, or to make better use of the potential, with a focus on the personality rather than on a particular position or function.
An assessment uses different techniques, from structured, semi-structured or free interviews up to tests in different areas as well as interactive exercises such as role-playing and similar, in the context of the defined observation criteria.
This is usually a service for companies that we offer in the section CACB Center for Assessment and Coaching.
