While assessment centers have been used for numerous human-resource management functions, all assessment centers are not alike. This book shows how assessment for managerial selection/promotion, diagnosis of managerial training needs, and team building among managerial groups are done differently. The author also shows how the assessed dimensions, observations, and participant feedback all must be tailor-made to the specific application of the assessment-center method.

Thorton and Rupp's current work demonstrated that the application of assessment centers has broadened considerably from their initial application as a tool for selecting managers and leaders....especially thorough in documenting the successful broadening of assessment centers to DACs. It is hard not to appreciate the care and conscientiousness the authors give to their subject.
This volume is an exceptionally clear, straightforward, yet thorough exposition of all the ins and outs of assessment center methods. It is meticulously grounded in wide ranging theory and research and very up-to-date....It brings together a host of information in a palatable way. It's an invaluable teaching and reference tool that professors, students, and practitioners will want to keep handy.
