Organizations always expect good performances and they have implemented complicated and advanced tools in order to study an individual and the team performance. Tools such as Development Centre are all time popular where teams and individuals are given mock assignments and tests to handle various issues that will consequently show their weaknesses, strengths and the areas where the team and the individual needs to develop and improve.
