Case Study: Psychometric Assessment

Business: Retail property manager

Objective: Our client had two directors and was looking to introduce a third director to complement the existing strengths of the business. All three men undertook personality and ability assessments to determine their preferences and likely behaviour, strengths, areas of potential development, interpersonal, thinking and coping style, likely management style and preferred team type. The purpose of this exercise was a pre-requisite to a strategic planning session for the business. Each director would be assigned key areas of responsibility to assist with the growth and development of the business.

Process: There were a number of differences between the three individuals and the exercise served as an effective tool to assist with the strategic planning session. The decisions made during this session supported the future development of the business.

Benefits:

  • Highlighted individual strengths in terms of who should lead the development of differing aspects of the business
  • Emphasised individual strengths in relation to project planning and problem-solving
  • Served as a tool to determine the future direction of the business
  • Identified areas of development for each individual director, providing them with information on aspects to personally develop further
  • Enabled the two existing directors to make a decision as to whether the third individual had complementary skills that would be beneficial to the business
