Behavioural Assessment in Action for the London Olympic & Paralympic Games

Working for the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), our team members designed and delivered the behavioural assessment centre that selected the strategic Delivery Partner (DP). The DP role was critical to the success of the Games as they would provide the programme management for the delivery of the venues and infrastructure for the Games.

The behavioural assessment centre involved the senior management teams from each bidding organisation working alongside the Board of the ODA in jointly addressing several realistic simulation challenges.

The ODA review of the construction project itself said, “The successful outcome is in no small part driven by the success of the client and Delivery Partner relationship.”

The behavioural assessment “Was one of eight key success factors in the procurement of the Olympics Delivery Partner…. It was worth the investment especially in a project such as this where the success of the relationship was so vital.”
