Develop an assessment strategy for an organization of your choosing. Preferably, this should be an organization with which you are familiar such as your current workplace or a former work environment. Presume you are an external consultant hired to help the organization with a particular assessment. You are to identify what the client’s particular need(s) will be. It may include assessing junior managers for executive positions, developing an organizational culture, and/or developing a recruitment and retention strategy for veterans. Describe the process you would take, briefly explain the organization and its need.

You should consider the following questions when researching and writing your paper:

  • How would you determine the organization’s needs?
  • What types of assessments would you recommend and select?
  • How did you evaluate the assessments?
  • How would you explain and determine the cost-benefit of the assessments to the organization’s decision makers?
  • How would you administer the assessments?
  • How would you evaluate and report your results?
  • What action planning steps would you incorporate into the process?

The paper will include a title page, abstract, and reference list – none of which count toward the page requirement. The paper will be written in accordance with APA style and should be approximately 15 to 20 pages in length. Use at least 12 scholarly references.

Papers will also be judged on the level of analysis, grammar, spelling, and adherence to these standards.
