Overview
What is it about?

PM SkillTest is an online assessment tool which evaluates primarily the skills of project managers. It consists of 50 problems and difficult situations typically encountered during the daily project work.

The participants are asked to sort out the four possible answers, starting with the “best” solution and, hence, demonstrate their abilities to find adequate solutions for each situation.

PM SkillTest is an ideal tool to evaluate not only the knowledge, but also the competences and soft skills of project managers.

How does it work

The participant has to answer 50 situational questions. For each situation, four options (i.e. four different ways of solving the problem) are suggested. The aim is to assess the pertinence of each option and sort them in order of preference.

The test is based on the competencies required to be a project manager – not only in the execution phase of a project, but also in the initiation, planning and closing phases. Besides technical know-how, the test will also measure the soft skills needed to be a project manager.

One popular approach is to use PM SkillTest to assess the skills of project managers before and after training. This way, you can measure the progress of the participants as well as the usefulness of the training.
