With the increasing presence of AI enabled assessments in an already burgeoning marketplace, what are the questions you should be asking to help you evaluate the merit of these solutions?

Based on her experience of evaluating and introducing AI-based assessment in to organisations, Michelle will share with you the questions you need to ask and how to avoid the pitfalls along the way.

  • “Extremely useful & informative”
  • Thank you to pymetrics and Michelle Hancic for hosting a superb event yesterday. Delving into the critical factors of how to assess and select AI assessment solutions.
  • Key take-aways:
    – Regularly refresh your model, assessing traits and taking into consideration environmental and talent changes.
    – Make sure the incumbent sample is inclusive, don’t just take a global solution and deploy.
    – Humans are extremely complex, one assessment tool will not be able to help you understand, assess and measure everything.
