Management Simulations Launches Evaluation
<strong>Northfield, Ill. — Aug. 28</strong><br />Management Simulations Inc. has launched Comp-XM, the Capstone Competency Exam. <br /><br />The patent-pending technology-based platform enables corporate trainers and HR managers to evaluate the business acumen and decision-making skills of managers, executives and recruits.<br /><br />Executed in conjunction with the Capstone Business Simulation to simulate a real-world business management experience, Comp-XM verifies learning and assesses judgment and analytical skills. <br /><br />Comp-XM takes Capstone to the individual level by enabling specific analysis of individual business skills. <br /><br />Using a business simulation, plus short exam questions, Comp-XM gauges performance and diagnoses weaknesses. <br /><br />Comp-XM’s fair, secure and comprehensive process gives corporate trainers and HR managers detailed insight for review.<br /><br />“By testing for business acumen and problem-solving skills, corporations are able to assess how employees make business decisions and anticipate the impact of internal and external conditions,” said Dr. Craig Watters, Management Simulations CEO. “The combination of the Capstone and Comp-XM technologies enables better processes, more accurate skill analysis and easier vetting.”<br /><br />Comp-XM went through rigorous testing by university professors from top-ranked business schools during its initial beta phase, which took place over 12 months. <br /><br />Those professors involved in testing learned that simulations engage individuals to work harder to arrive at the correct answers than traditional tests. <br /><br />Input from the thousands of participants, along with their highly esteemed professors, enabled MSI to improve the technology and launch Comp-XM to the broader educational marketplace. <br /><br />The Comp-XM technology was then adapted to serve the needs of the business community.
