The UC Management Skills Assessment Program (MSAP) is designed to strengthen the engagement and preparation of UC supervisors, managers, and professionals. It offers a unique assessment center experience for early career managers and professionals which over time is intended to build a valuable talent pipeline that assists the University in supporting upward mobility, succession planning, and deployment of talent as workforce needs unfold into the future.
The MSAP is based on extensive research in the fields of management and organizational behavior, and is comparable to other more costly assessment programs. The next UC Management Skills Assessment Program occurs April 24 - 26, 2012 with an application deadline of Monday, January 9, 2012.
The program is held at the UCLA Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead. The fee for assessees is $995, and includes food and lodging for three days and two nights, and a 360-degree feedback assessment. Staff Education and Development has funds to assist with offsetting each assessee's participant fee.
Staff Education and Development, a division of the Human Resources Department, coordinates the program. For the assessee application form and to read more about the Management Skills Assessment Program, go to: http://www.msap.ucr.edu.
I strongly encourage departments to consider supporting employees' interest in attending this valuable professional development experience. Ninety-eight percent of past participants have indicated that they would recommend attending.
