Executive Summary: Assessing People for Senior Jobs

This executive summary provides an overview of the main themes and key points of CRF’s full research report on assessing people for senior jobs. This report reviews the changing role of leaders and the importance of context, culture and job requirements when selecting them. It examines what criteria should be used for assessing leaders and provides an overview of assessment tools and methods.

• How has the role of a leader changed?
• What part do the organisation context, culture and job requirements play?
• What criteria should be used when assessing people for senior jobs?
• What assessment tools and methods can be used, and how helpful are they?
• What are the major causes of early career derailment?
• What approaches can be adopted to improve on-boarding?
