Partner Evaluation & Selection
We help organisations with partner assessment and selection where behaviours, management and collaborative competencies are key to the delivery of large and complex contracts. To ensure you get assessment results that can be relied upon, our behavioural assessment approach complies with over 33 best practice standards for the management and delivery of effective behavioural assessments. Our methods conform to EU procurement rules to assure consistency, fairness and objectivity and our team is especially well-placed to ensure success - we have the longest track record in delivering team and individual behavioural assessments and have worked on the highest value and highest profile projects in the world.
When designed well, and delivered to accepted standards, the behavioural assessment centre approach is one of the most reliable methods for predicting future behaviour and competence levels of potential collaborative partners. However, if designed and delivered incorrectly, it can fail to make accurate predictions of future competence, could place a procurement plan at risk of non-compliance with European procurement regulations, and could even prompt a challenge from a tendering organisation for perceived failings in procurement process.
B2B use a range of methods to test potential partners’ key competences including behavioural assessment centres, behavioural interviews and behavioural biography testing. All our assessment approaches are tested to ensure they uphold the required standards for objectivity, robustness, fairness and transparency.
With over a decade of experience in delivering over 50 behavioural assessments for contracts valued collectively in excess of £30 billion GBP, and by working on projects as diverse as the London Olympics, UK Ministry of Defence partner for facilities support to British Forces in Afghanistan and the London Thames Tideway Tunnel project, B2B team members have the skills, knowledge and experience to ensure an effective and compliant behavioural assessment is delivered.
