Online assessment for business succession

Wednesday 05 June 2024

In the online assessment for business succession, the competencies of a possible business successor are mapped out. These competencies are determined together with the client. For example: How does the company view succession? What qualities and competencies are expected of the successor? What are the points of attention for the successor?

During the online assessment, the competencies of the intended successor(s) are compared against the required competencies. The candidates’ strong qualities and areas of weakness to be developed are clearly defined. The online assessment is not only important for selection purposes, but it also strengthens the self-insight of the possible successor.
