The selection and development of managers and executives had long been conducted on a fairly haphazard basis, relying on the experience, hunches and a few instances even biases of decision makers in organizations. Standardized tests and current interviewing techniques are not much widely accepted in selection and evaluation of managers and executives, in part because of the seeming gap between the simple skills measured by the tests and the complex skills (especially people-oriented skills) believed to be critical for managers and executives; as they are not possibly evaluated by the current methods.

There is a growing demand for quality Human Resource but the supply for the latter is scarce. Hence it is crucial to map and assess the employees and their competencies scientifically & effectively because if unsuitable candidates are recruited it may have serious implications for the organizational performance.

Knowledge of psychological testing and assessment coupled with the skills to administer various instruments and interpret the results obtained can help human resource and other professionals associated with selection, recruitment, placement, talent management, etc., to evaluate human talent & behavior in a comprehensive and standardized manner and formulate appropriate HR practices and management policies.

Course Outline


Dr. C. N. Daftuar (D.Litt) defined Assessment Centre as a “method for assessing aptitude and performance and applied to a group of participants by trained assessors using various aptitude, diagnostic-processes in order to obtain information about applicants' abilities or development potential.” The Assessment Centre focuses on a set of varied exercises like psychometric testing, role play, behavioral event interview, etc., which are designed to simulate different aspects of work environment. These assessment center exercises are designed to assess how closely the candidates' behavior and skills match with the actual role requirements.


Assessment centre helps to-

  • Recruitment and promotion: Select the best from similar looking candidates. Save hiring costs in a big way. Where particular positions exist, that need to be filled, both internal and external candidates can be assessed for suitability to those specific posts. It is helpful in early identification of potential. The underlying rationale here is the need for an organisation to optimize talent as soon as possible. High potential people also need to be motivated so that they remain with the organisation.
  • Organization Branding: Build employer brand by giving them an image of a fair employer and
  • Competeny Mapping & Talent Management: In general, it has a great use for Competeny Mapping, Talent Management and similar exercises.
  • Diagnosis of training and development needs: Assessment and Development Centres offer the chance to establish individual training and development requirements, while providing candidates with a greater appreciation of their needs.
  • Organisational planning: Assessment Centres can be used to identify areas where widespread skill deficiencies exist within organisations, so that training can be developed in these areas. Results can also be integrated with human resource planning data to provide additional information concerning the number of people with particular skills needed to meet future needs.
  • Restructuring: Assessment and Development Centres can be used to assist the appointment of individuals into the new structure, identify individuals’ explicit strengths and development needs, key motivators and actions to meet needs. They can also be used to support career development planning for those appointed, and redeployment/career outplacement for those not.
  • Development: Development Centres can be used as a tool for team-building and the development of skills that will be called on in the future. Coaching and counselling sessions can be integrated into the programme to develop people during the course of the Development Centre
