1. Suggested competencies to be assessed These are suggestions only; you may want to substitute other competencies. The idea of competence is that job performance is seen in terms of behaviour rather than the outcomes of behaviour. One potential problem that this throws up for assessment centres is the ‘exercise effect’. This occurs when assessors rate participants in terms of the outcomes of an activity rather than the particular behaviours displayed. This can result in participants receiving different ratings for the same competency when assessed in different activities.

The standards are organized into six functional areas which are then sub-divided into a number of units. The six areas are: Managing Self and Personal Skills, Providing Direction, Facilitating Change, Working with People, Using Resources and Achieving Results. Each unit contains a range of ‘generic skills’, which equate most closely to the behaviours the activities in the pack are designed to assess. If you are working with the MSC 1997 standards the activities in this book are the broad equivalent of the ‘personal competencies’ at levels three and four.
