Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.
Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.
Findings – A study involving Dutch police officers being considered for promotion points to the need to balance the benefits of using developmental assessment centers (DACs) with the anticipation of the consequences of unfavorable feedback, and that disappointment and association with negative outcomes should be explicitly considered in the design of the DAC.
Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
