SHL Management and Executive
Scenarios Assessment

One of the most important challenges for any leadership team is ‘Do our managers know how to manage?’ Answering this question is now easier than ever with the SHL Scenarios questionnaires. Scenarios is unique in that it measures an individual’s ability to weigh up real-life situations and decide on appropriate and effective ways of handling them. Candidates are placed in a number of situations in which a selection of different options are suggested. Their responses are then compared with a set of ideal answers generated by experts – giving an assessment of their judgement.

One of the most important challenges for any leadership team is ‘Do our managers know how to manage?’ Answering this question is now easier than ever with the SHL Scenarios questionnaires. Scenarios is unique in that it measures an individual’s ability to weigh up real-life situations and decide on appropriate and effective ways of handling them. Candidates are placed in a number of situations in which a selection of different options are suggested. Their responses are then compared with a set of ideal answers generated by experts – giving an assessment of their judgement.

SHL’s Managerial and Executive Scenarios assessment is a unique test of Managerial Judgement – an individual’s ability to decide on effective ways of handling real life situations. It consists of hypothetical scenarios, each followed by several possible responses. Candidates rate the effectiveness of each response, using a 6-point scale, from highly undesirable to highly desirable. It can be used for recruitment, selection, training and development, performance management and coaching in a variety of functions and industries.

Two outputs are available, a simple Profile that provides the results for the main judgement scale and the three subscales : Managing Objectives, People Management and Corporate Management.

In addition a Narrative Report that includes the profile results but also interprets the scores and provides ideas and tips on how the candidate can develop these areas further.

  • Managing Objectives – making best use of energies, consultation, alignment with objectives, prioritisation
  • People Management – managing a team, balancing people issues with motivation and performance, leading and encouraging
  • Corporate or Reputation Management – Supporting, sustaining and being positive about the organisation, managing your manager, protecting the reputation of the organisation
