SR&A staff have been producing bespoke assessment and development centre exercises for many years for clients such as Shell, the Ministry of Defence, the Valuation Office Agency, the Independent Police Complaints Commission, and many more beside in the public and private sector. The Discovery series is the result of our effort to make use of this experience of exercise design to produce powerful, useful, and generic off-the-shelf exercises.
While qualified practitioners may purchase Discovery exercises as they see fit, we can also quote for tailoring exercises such as these or for the design of entirely new bespoke exercises.
The SR&A Discovery series is designed to offer the practitioner
a range of tried and tested exercises which are applicable in
of assessment functions and cover the range from graduate to
executive level. For each exercise in the range a pdf description may be downloaded so that you can see if it may be appropriate to your needs.
Each exercise is also supported by guidance for the assessor, administration
instructions, and observer rating or scoring sheets based around
the SR&A generic competency model. They can be purchased as
they are, or with modifications based on consultancy input to
ensure maximal fit with your local setting or competency framework.
The range continues to grow as we develop and trial new exercises.

Ensuring Responsible Use of Discovery Exercises
Discovery Series Exercises may only be
purchased by those who have been trained in the management and
design of Assessment & Development Centres, or who are experienced
in running them. Therefore those wishing to purchase and use Discovery
Series exercises first need to complete a Discovery

we can offer in-house Assessment

can work in partnership with you to choose, administer, and score
the exercises appropriately, and also to ensure they are interpreted
and fed back in an accurate and professional manner for best value.
