How does the Capability Assessment work?

Your nominated participants complete an online survey.

You receive Individual and Team Capability Assessment reports based upon Brainmates’ Product Management Competency Framework.

Contact Brainmates to find out if your Product People are doing the right thing.

Decide who to nominate

The number of people you decide to assess determines how much you pay.

Pricing is on a per participant basis regardless of the number of teams.

Participants complete surveys

Brainmates will provide the nominated participants with access to our online assessment tool, as well as a guide to the assessment process.

You will also need to identify an internal “assessor” for each nominated participant – a manager or peer - who is asked to provide their rating of the participant’s proficiency (also via an online survey).

Receive Your Capability Assessment reports

You receive one or more Team Capability Assessment reports which confirm where your team’s competencies lie across the Product Management domain.

  • Use this report to identify opportunities to build team collaboration and productivity.
  • Team reports are created for each team with 3 or more assessment participants.

An Individual Capability report is also provided for each participant identifying where their skills and knowledge lie in terms of the core Product Management competencies.

  • This report is designed as a tool to support productive discussions around individual learning and career development (an important factor in employee retention).

Brainmates developed our Capability Assessments after working with hundreds of Product teams to improve the Product Management practice within their organisations.

Brainmates’ Capability Assessments are based upon our Product Management Framework that is used by organisations to:

  • Excel at the lifecycle management of products and services
  • Identify and develop ideas into market-ready products and services

Why would we need Product capability assessments? Can’t we just do Product training?

Our Product capability assessments are designed to help you get the most out of training. They help uncover what training particular team members don’t need, and what specific training and help they do need.

So then we proceed to team training?

If you wish, Brainmates can help leverage the findings of your assessment reports to further grow the Product Management capabilities within your organisation through specialised Product Management training. Find out more about our Product Management workplace training for groups of six or more, or our public courses on Product Management, held regularly in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and beyond.

What if we want coaching?

Coaching helps further embed your training with your team or organisation. Coaching with Brainmates is like having an objective Product Management expert on hand to give you insight and feedback, and help you implement changes.

Whether they are experienced or new to Product Management, we provide either Organisational Product Coaching or individual Career Coaching if you prefer.

Contact Brainmates to chat about what coaching options might work for you.
