Managerial Assessment of Proficiency
Improving Performance While Saving Training Budget
MAP is a video-based, objective assessment of managerial competence. Targeted training based on MAP scores is provided by the Managing to Excel training modules. Participants are provided prioritized development suggestions and a detailed listing of those learning opportunities with the greatest potential impact on managerial
performance. MAP/Excel enables an organization to quickly and accurately identify the key opportunities for training and development, saving time and budget.
The MAP assessment is available in both a classroom and online format. Managing to Excel targeted training modules are available for each competency in customizable, half-day classroom workshops. Organizations have the flexibility and options available to customize training meet internal needs. With MAP and Excel a complete management development system is available that will improve both individual and organizational performance.
Without buy-in you have nothing! MAP provides superior buy-in by all company stakeholders so that you can rest assured that all your managers have attained basic competency skill levels.
Participants buy-in because the MAP assessment videos depict realistic management scenarios.
Trainers buy-in because objective MAP data provides information on competence
unclouded by personal preference and political environment.
Management buys-in because aggregate, objective training needs can be calculated and the next step training is designed to close skill gaps, fast.
