'Our approach is highly qualitative; respectful of the environment and the culture of our clients'
We assist our clients in the choice and implementation of the best organisational structures.
This service is particularly valuable for organisations facing immediate challenges such as: mergers or acquisitions, strategic re-direction, turnaround or restructuring, critical transition in a period of dramatic growth, succession planning, privatisation etc. Time is one of the critical success factors in these circumstances. From the outset of each Management Assessment project, we bring together the best team of Consultants with the relevant expertise and experience to swiftly carry out the required assessments quickly.
Our approach is highly qualitative; respectful of the environment and the culture of our clients.
Based on proven interview techniques, we analyse the organisation, evaluating the skills and knowledge base of the interviewees, as well as characterising their behavioural patterns and personality traits against an agreed set of competencies.
Our objective assessment has wider application, from strategic redirection, to management overhaul or mergers and acquisitions. We quickly and comprehensively identify the following: management team strengths and weaknesses; change-readiness across the organisation; bench-marks for internal and external resources. This may result in our recommending organisational development, specific career paths, succession plans or talent development programmes.
AN EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION TOOL
Throughout the assessment project, our consultants become part of the client’s project team, helping the organisation prepare for the necessary changes. Assessment is both a decision-making tool and a catalyst of change.
A PROFESSIONAL TEAM OF CONSULTANTS
Appraisals are conducted by a team of consultants with specific assessment skills and relevant industry experience. The evaluation and benchmarking abilities which we develop in our regular executive search work are supplemented by specific training in management appraisal techniques.
The consultants of Eric Salmon & Partners are all regularly trained in the use of complementary tools, such as the Predictive Index Analysis, MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) etc.
