takes about twenty minutes to complete. A subsequent workshop
covering the different practices (including the ‘ideal’ practice)
takes about one day. At the end of each of the practices covered in
the workshop, gaps between the self-assessment and assessments of
others are analyzed. A comparison to the ‘idea’ is also examined.
Individual action plans for improvement are prepared for
implementation back on-the-job
assessment measures twelve traits/values that drive managerial
behavior. The resulting profile is divided into three clusters:
constructive, passive and aggressive.
A workshop covering
the twelve factors takes one-half day. Each person’s profile is
compared against the group and/or organization profile plus an
’ideal’ managerial profile. Gaps are identified and action plans for
improvement are prepared.

In addition, managers' motivation to learn significantly increases when they realize the potential benefits of raising their competency level in specific areas.
Management Development System has four phases: Assessment, Interpretation,
Planning, and Training.
The Assessment phase takes about five hours
responding to video scenarios and results in a computer-generated profile of
the participant’s strengths and areas for development on twelve managerial
competencies. A group profile is also generated for use in targeting overall
training needs. This comprises day one of a two-day workshop.
Interpretation phase (morning of day two) defines the desired managerial
behaviors regarding these twelve managerial competencies and identifies
The Planning phase (afternoon of day two) is where
participants diagnose their profiles and work on their Individual
Development Plans setting out actions to be taken for training, development
and future growth.
The Training phase is done over time as half-day
workshops are scheduled based on the collective needs of all participants.

managers participate in this on-line survey, the assessment will
measure the managerial culture of the organization which, in
turn, significantly affects the overall culture of the
