During the assessment process recruiters can use business scenarios where they can challenge participants with lifelike tasks, and support candidates’ decision making by offering background stories. At SimTeam we provide different business scenarios, and our partners can choose from a variety of case studies, selecting the one that best fits the assessment centre’s needs and focus.
With SimTeam, recruiters can place participants into roles where they must adapt to complex situations and make difficult decisions. Recruiters can even provide situations where participants must encounter some sort of confrontation where they need to negotiate with other team members. Tasks can be based on case studies, and they can also be supplemented with individual challenges.
Adaption to new situations
Co-operational skills and teamwork
Communication and interpersonal skills
Conflict management, negotiation and leadership
Performance under time pressure
The simulation can be configured with almost any kind of starting positions, and time pressure can be high or low, as desired, and it can be adjusted even while the simulation is in progress.
Unlike the other approaches, the SimTeam simulation is difficult to predict because a large number of parameters can be adjusted. Participants cannot prepare for its challenges, and the AC can always offer new scenarios.
Teamwork can be introduced or approached in different ways
Decisions have an immediate effect
It can be customized with in-tray elements
The simulation can be used to assess recent graduates as the simulation itself requires no special knowledge and experience. The simulation can just as easily be used for participants in management positions, as the difficulty of the simulation is scalable. The suggested number of participants in assessment centres is between 2 and 16 persons, in teams of four. For each participant it is recommended to delegate one or two supervisors who can assess their individual performances and skills.
