Assessment centres

Observing project management behaviours

By placing the candidate within a simulated project management environment and observing their behaviours and performance over a number of different exercises, a more robust assessment of their capability can be made.

Provek has conducted many project management assessment centres for project professionals which run typically for between one and three days.

Our approach

We first identify with the client which competences are to be assessed at the assessment centre,  how long it will last and the range of job roles attending.  From this we create a real-to-life project scenario and exercises for individual candidates and for small groups.

At the assessment centre, the capability of each candidate is assessed through written and group working exercises for each of the competences in scope. One consultant is required per three or four candidates and the total number of candidates is between six and 12.

Candidate reports

Every candidate receives a multi-page report detailing the positive evidence observed and areas for potential development for each competence (see example).

Provek is also a leading provider of the APM Practitioner Qualification which is a 48-hour assessment centre to determine capability.
