The MCPA Assessment is an online variant of the full Career Path Appreciation, an interview process originally developed by Bioss in the UK.

The MCPA assesses:

  • Current capability to manage complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty
  • Decision-making capability (operational through to strategic)
  • Theme of Work where he / she will experience ‘flow’ and engagement
  • Rate of growth and identification of future potential
  • Readiness for upward or lateral career movements

The MCPA will be beneficial when you need to:

  • Select the ‘right people into the right roles’ at all organisational levels
  • Select or develop management through to executive level employees
  • Increase the level of flow and engagement in your organisation
  • Create a platform for mentoring, career path management, and competency development
  • Develop talent pools for succession planning and leadership development programs
  • Create meaningful leadership in your organisation
  • Enhance job and organisational performance
  • Improve talent retention, job satisfaction and commitment

Delivery of the MCPA involves a 2-part process:

  • In Part 1 the candidate completes an Internet-based questionnaire designed to explore experience of and preferred approach to work
  • In Part 2 an accredited MCPA practitioner conducts a 1 on 1 validation interview with the candidate during which answers to Part 1 are explored and unpacked

Outputs of the MCPA:

  • Candidates receive feedback immediately after their MCPA
  • Organisations are provided with feedback
  • Reports are made available to both organisations and candidates
