We typically begin by assessing procurement knowledge using our online assessment. We can then carry out more in-depth probing to analyse an appropriate training and development starting point to bridge knowledge gaps.
Competency Assessment Tool
CIPS Competency Assessment Tool is an online questionnaire that will take approximately one and a half to two hours to complete.
There are 132 multiple choice questions across the 11 themes of the CIPS Global Standard in Procurement and Supply:
For each theme there will be 12 questions split equally across the Operational, Managerial. Professional and Advanced Professional competency levels. At the end of each theme candidates will be required to give their answers a confidence rating.
The output of the competency assessment is a guide for employers of the strengths and development needs across the team, along with a personal report of individuals to help address their own development needs.
