ASSESSMENT DEVELOPMENT CENTERS (ADCs)-IN THE CENTERSTAGE TODAY The key Human Resource challenge of modern times is to get the right people, retain them, develop their leadership capabilities, and utilize their potential for the future. Internal promotions, development of leadership and other capabilities have been found to be the most needed competencies for running an organization. While search for new talent and new leaders is an ever growing need of the day, utilizing and developing in-house potential has been grossly underfocussed by Indian organizations. It is much more advantageous for organizations to identify talent from within and build them for the future especially keeping cost, quality and other considerations in the forefront. The first step in tackling all these challenges is an assessment of an individuals competencies followed by effective utilisation or development of desired competencies. ADCs provide useful technologies for identifying and developing talent from within or from outside. Such talent identification can be very advantageous if there are in-house capabilities available for spotting talent and developing the same. BACKGROUND TO ADCs Assessment and Development Centers are set up by the organization for mapping competency requirements for various roles, and for continuous assessment and development of its employee competencies in critical positions. It uses multiple assessment methods like tests, interviews, role plays etc. and multiple assesors in an effort to elicit patterns of behaviour previously identified as successful in given management positions.
