In general, traditional assessment centers suffer a lot of shortcomings making them, to many organizations, not that efficient, some of these shortcomings are:
-Short term and short span. (Mostly 1-2 days, nothing before or after)
-Selected case studies. (Maximum one or two selected cases..)
-High focus. (Not actual work environment)
-Limited tools. (Time and pressure constraints.)
-High cost. (Of an average $ 1,000 per head and mostly much higher)
-Low buy in by candidates. (Ignoring previous experiences and achievements.)
-Circumstantial. (it’s never accepted and mostly candidates believe in some other time.)
-Not fully bias-free. (Human tendencies and personal preferences exist, like it or not.)
