As a senior figure in a company, the numerical skills you're being asked to present are different from those of the general population of candidates, be it graduates or supervisors. In other words, you are expected to show top percentile strengths in numerical analysis skills, as they will affect many of your decisions as a senior manager.
Many managerial recruitment processes include a numerical reasoning assessment. Managers are expected to be comfortable with data analysis and numerical operations as they are an integral part of your daily work, regardless of rank or industry. It's a cost-effective tool to screen out less competitive candidates.
If you were invited to take a managerial numerical test, the types of test you can expect are determined by your specific job level. In the world of assessments, we could say that the division is as follows:
1-Junior/Middle management numerical reasoning tests (also known as graduate/mgmt)2-Senior management numerical tests (directors, VPs, C level)
In many cases, assessment companies will not separate the above two groups. That is, a graduate applying for an entry level analyst job at a corporate bank may take the same test as a department manager or director. In such a case, either a cut-off score will determine whether a candidate progresses, or the score is compared to the average score of the cohort.
In other cases the level of difficulty of senior managerial tests will differ substantially. Let’s look at some types of advanced managerial numerical reasoning tests.
As with all other job related tests, the key to preparing for numerical managerial tests is finding the exact name or type of test you have been asked to take. Once you have it, look for a practice resource that follows the specific characteristics of that test as much as possible. JobTestPrep offers the full gamut of preparation resources.
