Workplace Assessment

In Chapter 1 of the Handbook of Workplace Assessment,

author Kevin Murphy (2010) describes two primary approaches for

workplace assessment—assessing work-oriented strategies (what people do

to carry out their assigned roles and responsibilities) and analyzing

people-oriented factors (the characteristics of people that influence

how they perform in the workplace). For each approach, describe the

domains that might be assessed and what implications may be drawn by

assessing each domain. Based on your understanding of the use of

assessment in succession planning (as described in Chapter 15 by Paese,

2010), how might each of these approaches be used in succession

planning? Explain your answer, referencing course readings and other

academic sources.
