Inside This Assessment

Project managers oversee the fundamental aspects of any project, i.e., scope, budget, schedule, quality, resources, and risk. They are responsible for ensuring that a project is completed successfully and efficiently.  Since they are required to monitor a project from the beginning to the end, they are expected to have clarity of thought, excellent communication, and negotiation skills. They also need to have logical reasoning  skills to plan and manage budgets efficiently. That is why organizations looking for competent project managers need scientifically–validated pre-hire assessments that differentiate high potential candidates from average or below-average applicants for these roles.

And that is where Mercer | Mettl’s project manager test comes in handy.
