As leading practitioners involved in the process of designing and delivering assessment & development centres, Mike and Philippa introduced the session by outlining how to engineer assessment centres in accordance with the BPS recommendations for what would be best practice based on ISO standards. In the afternoon session Chris Dewberry, an eminent authority on the development of BPS standards framing the design and delivery of assessment centres, fascinated the audience with the depth and detail of his investigations into assessment metrics as well as his findings obtained from the latest research on measuring competencies.
These distinguished presenters were able to provide effective answers to some very challenging questions from our members, leaving a lasting impression on the audience and receiving extremely positive feedback from all participants involved. In the words of one senior psychologist: “It was a truly excellent meeting. I was captivated by its style and content throughout: a rare experience these days!”.
