Paul Iles provides a distinctive approach to managing staff selection and assessment in organizations. He discusses not only the dominant psychometric model but also draws upon perspectives from strategic management theory, social psychology, and critical theory. This is an accessible text which discusses developments both in the UK and internationally, provides specific organizational case studies, and describes recent research findings and their implications for organizational practice. It locates techniques and procedures in the contexts of corporate strategy, structure and culture. It shows how organizations have sought to use assessment strategically in the search for competitive advantage: recruiting, selecting, appraising and developing staff in order to bring about organizational and cultural change. The book concludes by applying its frameworks to an area of key significance : the identification, assessment and development of managerial competence.
