Why invest in Map Assessment Management Assessment

What does a MAP Assessment 2.0 programme involve?

Step 1

The assessment involves watching a series of 10 video scenarios that cover a week in the life of a manager and his team and then answering a series of questions that relate to each episode. The scenarios include:

  • Team meeting
  • Time management
  • Decision making
  • Delegating
  • Discipline and empathy
  • Appraising staff
  • Performance management
  • Problem solving
  • Listening

After each short episode, participants are required to answer a series of multiple-choice questions about what they have seen and if, in their opinion, what they have seen is good or bad management practice. In addition to these scenarios, there are also two paper-based questionnaires that report preferred both communication and management styles. This assessment can be delivered in a group setting or can be completed online without the need for a facilitator to be present.  Either way, the assessment process takes around 6-7 hours to complete.


Step 2

The second step of the MAP Assessment process is spent understanding and interpreting your individual report and in producing an individual development plan that details your development needs as a manager and your commitment to action.  If taken as a management team, a team report is also produced that highlights team norms and areas to consider for the team's development.


Included in your investment is an online suite of e-learning modules that can be completed in your own time.  They will support you in understand the correct answers to the MAP assessment and support you in your development in each of the 12 competence areas measured by MAP Assessment.
