The theme permeating this book on assessment centers is "continuity and change", describing what has remained the same and what has changed in the 50-year history of the assessment center method. One of the important changes explored is the evolution of the goals of assessment center programs and the ways in which assessment centers and their component parts have been used. Assessment Centers in Human Resource Management clearly differentiates between assessment centers used for prediction, diagnoses, and development. In addition, this book explores: assessment centers and human resource management; court cases involving assessment centers; innovations in assessment center operations; cross-cultural considerations including diversity of the workforce; and assessor training. The target audience for the text includes students who are learning about assessment centers, practitioners including human resource managers and consultants who may be considering the implementation of assessment centers, and academicians who are researching the method and wish to understand current issues.

Globalization, innovation, market share, identifying visionary leaders and, particularly, talent management ...are just some of the issues that benefit from using assessment and development centres. Assessment Centres and Global Talent Management focuses on topics that influence the design of the assessment centre in terms of the competencies being assessed, the exercises that are used and the nature of the event, so that they can deliver what is required; often to change organizational culture and values. Practical examples and case studies are sprinkled throughout the book as international contributors explore cross-cultural implications, and consider how the design, development and use of assessment centres should be adapted to different cultures. Some of the world's leading researchers and practitioners outline their research into new applications for assessment centre methods, showing how they have used it to design and implement specific assessment and development centres. This is a book from which practitioners can see how science informs good practice, and scholars will find the 32 chapters a rich source of ideas for conducting research into emerging issues in the field.

The Assessment Center process is the best method for identifying management potential in candidates and whether they can demonstrate a talent for planning and organizing, and possess the necessary judgment, communication skills and decision-making ability to move up the ranks. Many candidates do possess these abilities, but they have not learned how to apply them. This book will teach you how to use all your potential. Law enforcement officers are often confused, afraid, nervous or just plain curious about what they will experience when they go through the process. Most books on the assessment center process cover primarily its history, the skill dimensions, a description of the process and provide a few sample exercises. What makes this book different is that it provides an experiential approach to preparing for an assessment center by including numerous practice exercises, experiential learning, role player scripts, sample detailed Assessor Guides, and information from an experienced professional who has a 360-degree view of assessment center processes. By practicing these exercises, the reader will learn a great deal about their potential and abilities. The organization of this book starts with the notorious, challenging, perplexing, incorrectly defined and life-changing in-basket exercise. The author has many years of experience with in-baskets, which has included providing feedback to candidates and training assessors. Many of the essential sample exercises and components of the in-basket exercise are included in this book and have been used in past assessment center processes or in customized exercises. After reading the sample exercises and commentary contained herein, you will be convinced that your time and money have been well spent. Why? Because you will have practiced the exercises herein and, beyond just reading about the assessment center process, you will have learned about many of the most important components of the process.

​This book provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art overview of simulation development, technologies, and implementation, including real-world examples and results followed by a preview of what’s on the horizon that will further revolutionize the industry. More than a handful of books have been written on the use of simulations for training purposes, but this book focuses solely on simulations in employee selection contexts (e.g., hiring, promotion), making it a truly unique and valuable resource for both practitioners and academics. The science and practice of employee selection has advanced at a steady pace over the past two or three decades. However, recent advancements in both technology and assessment methods have been the catalyst for an evolutionary leap in the use of simulations in this area.
