The self-assessment process is suitable for internal use by organizations or for consultants carrying out assessment assignments. The assessment is particularly suitable for organizations that:
- Want to arouse discussion of development needs and are planning to start systematic development activities.
- Want to check that an existing development program is focusing on the right issues.
- Have newly appointed managers who want to gather key people's opinions on development issues in a systematic way and in a short space of time.
The assessment is suitable:
For preliminary training of employees with the objective of getting them to understand development holistically and appreciate the methods of development and change management. After the assessment it will be easier to implement the specialist phases of development.
For directly implementing the research and development associated with specific specialist stages, while using the philosophy and stages of the Change Needs Assessment (quality, throughput times, health, and safety issues).
