Obermann Consulting provides professional AC actors for assessment and development center procedures. The role players simulate key situations associated with the position in question – e.g. employee appraisals, negotiations or team meetings – thereby ensuring a high level of diagnostic quality and standardization. Using professional role players in AC or DC procedures ensures that the defined requirements can actually be observed. Here, the role play partners act as “diagnostic testers” of the participants’ performance. In the course of the simulation, they take into account the requirements and/or competencies that need to be seen and provoke these specifically. Thanks to their role player training, they can ensure that even top candidates are faced with very challenging interview situations. This in turn allows differences in performance to be gauged in the evaluation system in a differentiated way.
