Outcomes Based Assessment –Start with the End in Mind? Dunstan Arthur, Practice Director, Gartner:


Despite a proliferation of new assessment tools and technology, the metrics for selecting the right people for jobs are at best static, and in many cases declining.


How can organisations improve selection and demonstrate the value gained from the assessment process? Outcomes Based Assessment is a new methodology in which assessment tools and methods are selected, deployed, monitored and optimised for their ability to deliver specific and measurable business outcomes. In this session we will introduce Outcomes Based Assessment, describe the key features of the approach and explore the link between assessment and achieving organisational goals, illustrated with client case stories.
