Hi Friends
I am sure all my friends would agree that Assessment/Development Centres are one of the vital aspects of training and development.
There has to be more creativity in handling assessment centres.
Group tasks have to be handled with utmost sensitivity.

Dear Anuradha
Whil using an in-basket , the learning outcome focusses on decision making , prioritization and the ability to mange time . It however depends on the way it is used , if the time given is too long , then the spontaneity of the response is lost .If it is too short , then the objective of the exercise is lost.
When writing any kind of a training game , the factors to be kept in mind are : the learning objectives aimed at , the time factor and the utility of the exercise in achieveing the objectives .To make the in-basket understood , varied elements of suspense , seemingly related and unrelated facts will make it more challening .
I will locate the inbasket I have made and post it .

Dear Anuradha
There are few in this world who help people with such insightful literature. Believe me its extremely informative and looking forward to gain some more inputs from you on similar topics. Thanks

An in-basket exercise can be designed to gain insight into specific competencies. Its important to understand the dimension and the level of difficulty you are trying to assess. For example, an in-basket exercise for an executive secretary would differ from one for the senior executive. While you might be trying to assess time management ability of both, you might be looking at the delegation skills of the executive and perhaps the organizational skills of the secretary.
For those of you have to design these and other simulation activities for assessment centers, I have run across an excellent book:
Developing Organizational Simulations A Guide for Practitioners and Students by George C Thornton III and Rose A Mueller-Hanson.

I purchased my copy from Amazon. It was well worth the investment
