Steve you raise a really good point about assessment – it stimulates and legitimizes valuable conversations. In particular I have found in my work with large organizations that conversations around an external standard are invaluable. The standard could be a test, it could be a competency framework but ideally it gives manager and employee a chance to sit down side by side and explore performance together objectively rather than doing it confrontationally across the table. Talent optimization in the organization depends on good data and these conversations are an essential part of building that data.

Funny, I've always thought two of the best (and, really, only) assessment questions are:
1. What's it like to work for me?
2. What's it like to have me as a direct report?

Short and sweet. The hard part is to be open, honest, thorough and direct in responding.
