PPM Power and Performance Measures

PPM Power and Perfomance Measures is a series of nine separate tests that can be used effectively within recruitment and career development. These tests are particularly beneficial when assessing management potential. By adopting PPM Power and Performance measures PTS have assisted organisations with their management and leadership development, succession planning and outplacement.

PPM Power tests measure approaches to reasoning, which do not change over time and assess aptitude rather than actual performance.

Through the use of PPM Power and Performance measures, PTS Insight have assisted organisations with their management and leadership development, succession planning and outplacement support.
