ASSESSING PROJECT MANAGEMENT KNOW - HOW
ĐÁNH GIÁ KỸ NĂNG QUẢN LÝ DỰ ÁN
Most project management tests and assessments measure only one thing: knowledge. While knowledge is certainly useful, it cannot solely tell you if someone is a good project manager. You also need to know how they might cope with problems or difficult situations. PM-SkillTest is the missing piece of your puzzle.
PM-SkillTest consists of 50 problems and difficult situations typically encountered 'during the day-to-day running of a project. For each situation, four options (i.e. four different ways of solving the problem) are suggested. The aim is to assess the pertinence of each option and sort them in order of preference.
The test is based on the competencies required to be a project manager – not only in the execution phase of a project, but also in the initiation, planning and closing phases. Besides technical know-how, the test will also measure the soft skills needed to be a project manager.
PM-SkillTest is available online and the duration of the test is one and half an hour; however, many people complete the test in less time. When you take the test, you are allowed two breaks – and it’s recommended that you take at least one of them.
One popular approach is to use PM-SkillTest is to assess the skills of project managers before and after training. This way, you can measure the progress of the participants as well as the usefulness of the training.
