Ready to use exercises

Our portfolio of assessment exercises, ‘ready to use’ are designed for a variety of situations — from middle management to graduate and customer service staff.

They’re not tailored for a specific role but measure key behaviour expected at a certain levels. Suitable for use with the generic Burnham Business Psychology behavioural framework, they can also be adapted to measure your own organisations competency framework.
