Talent Management

Our ability to develop a strategic partnership with Anglo American over a long period bears testimony to the validity of our tools, the professionalism of our approach and the ongoing reliability of our findings. Over 500 executives have been assessed in the context of talent management or executive appointments. We have shown that we have the ability to identify the attributes and competencies in the Anglo competency framework when we identify what it will take to succeed in Anglo American.

JQA associates are seasoned professionals who have enjoyed successful careers in blue chip organisations. This knowledge and experience forms the basis of our advice on executive hires and executive development. We use high quality diagnostic tools in Executive Assessment and Talent Development including Cognitive Profiling, Personality Questionnaires and measures of Values, Motivation and Attitudes.

How can you predict whether an individual will succeed in a role they have not been exposed to?

The ability to predict how an individual will perform in an unfamiliar context and in a role they have never held in the past is dependent on knowing the success criteria (the skills and competencies required) and the makeup of the individual. The ability to exercise good judgement comes from a combination of Intellectual Abilities (Cognitive Profile) and Personal Qualities. We are specialists in Occupational and Business Psychology and use the most modern tools in the assessment and development of executive talent.

Transformation and turning around organisational performance

Working with their Business Transformation and HR Specialists we support Anglo American in setting the bar higher in performance management, recruitment and development rather than living with second best. This has been the key to business success. JQA are a trusted partner in Talent Management and Executive Assessment at Anglo American.
