Talent assessment represents a critical element in organizational success. Unless the correct people are identified, promoted and given other organizational rewards such as extra training and pay, organizational motivation and leadership wane. A new procedure called Team Evaluation, TE, provides advantages not available with traditional assessment procedures. TE uses (1) on-the-job assessments rather than off-the-job tests or simulations; (2) includes everyone rather than only a few "high potentials"; (3) occurs annually rather than only once in a career; (4) allows employee participation; and (5) captures performance (merit) information as well as promotability. Mark Edwards is an Associate Professor with the College of Engineering, Arizona State University in Tempe. J. Ruth Sproull is a founding partner of Sproull, Edwards & Associates management consulting firm in Phoenix.
