Assessments are designed according to a Competency Framework which is derived from global best practice for the particular role. Each competency is assessed and questions relevant to both the role and the level are selected from an extensive question database. The question database is a combination of soft skill questions and specific questions relevant to the competencies for the job role.
Following years in the supply chain and operations management skills development sector it became apparent that most organisations didn’t know where or how to pinpoint the skills shortages in their employees or organisation. BIZZCO went about finding a solution to this problem to help companies understand their organisations skills shortages which would in turn enable them to correctly plan skills development initiatives rather than guessing on what skills sets are required.
Through our on line assessment process areas of strengths and weaknesses are identified in each employee in relation to their role. As an organisation it eliminates wasteful expenditure on training that is not required but guides you on exactly what is.
A number of assessments have been developed for popular roles in Supply Chain Management and we continue to identify additional roles for which assessments are being developed. We work with the best practice approach which is based on the APICS and SAPICS Body of knowledge and internationally verified “soft” or transferable skills.
