ManagerReady® is a breakthrough frontline leader assessment that delivers the same quality of diagnosis as a full-blown assessment center at a fraction of the cost.
Unlike multiple choice tests where participants choose what they would do or say, ManagerReady® participants engage in situations where they interact with team members, take action, and solve problems -- just as they would on the job.
These real world situations provide a highly accurate measurement of a participant's readiness for frontline leadership positions.
ManagerReady® measures the nine competencies most critical for success in a frontline leadership position:
Coaching for success
Coaching for improvement
Delegation and empowerment
Planning and organizing
ManagerReady® is available by appointment. Call 913-469-2787 for more information. The cost is $599 and includes four-hour assessment and a 30 minute follow-up call to discuss your results.
A Highly Engaging, Realistic Experience
ManagerReady® is highly engaging, realistic and easy to use. Participants complete a series of managerial tasks similar to those they would face on the job -- such as coaching a direct report on handling a new project or asking people questions to uncover a production problem.
Participants receive developmental feedback, which helps them weigh their development strengths and weaknesses and commit to solid development plans.
In addition, they get specific advice about how they can meet with their manager to build an individual development plan.
ManagerReady® provides insight into the strengths and development needs of your current and future frontline leaders.
Better selection decisions -- Identify those individuals who are best prepared to step into your frontline leader roles.
Accelerated development -- Give participants and their managers a better understanding of leadership skill gaps and provide them with tips and tools to create and act on focused development plans.
Fast and easy roll-out -- Within days you can start scheduling participants just about anywhere in the world.
Limitless scalability -- Assess a handful of people for a single promotion or thousands of managers for leadership development.
Validation of the ManagerReady® Assessment Center
ManagerReady® is one of the most accurate predictors of frontline leadership success on the market.
DDI validated ManagerReady® with hundreds of frontline managers from large North American companies. Managers who earned high scores during this assessment were 3.6 times more likely to be a top performer on the job.
Early Reviews for ManagerReady®
"This data has some teeth, which in an organization like ours is hugely important. We see this as a high-value add-on to both our selection and development efforts."
-- Tim Toterhi, Senior Director of Global Organizational Design, Quintiles
"DDI has a really awesome new technology-backed product for managerial selection. This new technology provides the benefits of assessment centers (i.e., highly realistic job content, the ability to measure complex problem solving, and the use of live assessors) in a short format that is available for a lower price-point than traditional assessment centers. This product is a very nice blend of technology and content and provides a highly valuable way to evaluate managerial performance both pre- and post-hire, allowing for a nice continuum along the employee lifecycle."
-- Dr. Charles Handler, Founder of Rocket Hire, ERE.net, Blog posting, 10.5.10
