It is a simulated work situation that can be used in different contexts: adequacy job/person, recruitment, promotion, identification of training needs / preparation of the training plan.
The evaluation of people’s professional behavior is carried out through simulations (written or oral, including by telephone,) which are specifically built by the Core Advice teams to reproduce the reality of the jobs concerned and reveal the professional behaviors for performance.
Each session of “behavioral assessment” is composed of one or more exercises, written or oral, simulating real professional situations taking into account also the socio-culture of the organization.
In the written simulation of the “in-basket mail” type, the person plays the role of a manager who in a certain time (usually 2 or 3 hours) will have to deal with different situations and problems.
Core Advice, together with Arnava (SBT Group), has developed the first computer-based “in-basket mail” simulation to evaluate the professional capabilities and behaviors of executives in sub-Saharan Africa.
