BSH, in-basket for assessing management performance

Business Simulation Highlight [BSH] is a management exercise for assessment centers. Participants complete this online in basket in one hour. In that hour, they make hundreds of decisions and demonstrate whether they can get the job done together with their team and organization.

The in basket BSH combines the reliability of an in-basket with the objectivity of online assessment and processing. In 60 minutes a participant is offered a wide range of tasks and about 400 decisions or options. In seconds the results are scored and analyzed. First of all, you will get feedback on participants’ results and effective performance, like efficiency, team leadership, and customer relations.

A good assessment center shows what management skills a participant has acquired.

the online version is considerably more efficient than the written simulations. The online Highlight takes half the time, and the reviewing is done in seconds. (A paper simulation is usually done in two hours and will cost you at least an hour to score.)

Using BSH is objective because of the scoring of every person and every decision in the same way. Normation of Highlight is based on thousands of participants. On request, we also supply customized standards and reference groups.
