MANAGEMENT DIAGNOSTICS


What is management diagnostics?

Management diagnostics enable the analysis of the strengths, potential, talents, competencies and development fields of managers and leaders. In addition, management diagnostics provide insights into their personality and helps to understand and evaluate the motivation, characteristics, values, attitudes, competences and behaviour of leaders. Based on data from 360 ° feedback, interviews, questionnaires and observations, the above mentioned personal and professional factors can be measured and then decisions made.

Meaningful analysis

Through appropriate procedures for assessing the potential of your employees and leaders in your company, we are able to determine specific personnel development measures. We can measure and evaluate the success of these measures. On this basis, we evaluate the self-, external- and best-case assessments and use the values determined for later or further development measures.

Transparent results

With the knowledge gained in the analysis, we can develop modern talent management systems for you – if requested, also based on already scientifically proven results. Through online-based procedures, we ensure efficiency, speed and transparency of the competence analyses within your potential assessment processes.

How and where is management diagnostics applied?


Because leaders have a great influence on the success of the company, it is essential to understand their personality and suitability – both for established managers, as well as for emerging talent and management-level applicants.

Management diagnostics is therefore used to select suitable candidates for management level and to review the current management, as well as to promote strategic management development. Two complementary analyses are typically carried out:

  1. Personality analysis – How a person “ticks”, what characterizes them?
    (E.g., assertiveness, ability to deal with conflict, team orientation, learning agility, perseverance, etc.)
  1. Aptitude analysis – Does this person fit our situation, our company?
    (E.g., person-job-fit, person-organisation-fit, situational behaviour, dealing with crises, etc.)
