aKumen assessment programme

aKumen is LHH's proprietary assessment approach. Capability, motivation, andfocus as the three key elements to leadership effectiveness and these markthe foundation of our approach to senior leadership assessment. Itidentifies a senior leader’s key strengths and weaknesses and uncoverspotential areas of risk. These insights reveal where development would bemost useful, and what can be done to help leaders develop the skillsrequired to manage teams and drive business success.

aKumen looks at:

  • Capability – this assesses aspects of effective leadership

  • Motivation – this offers insights into what motivates a leader

  • Focus – this assesses decision-making and logic

We also use an assessment solution, aKuity, to reveal insights into anemployee’s personality and mindset and how this may play out in theworkplace environment, and Orion to assess leadership potential.

Reporting is a key part of each programme. We:

  • Provide insights into your leadership’s capabilities set against yourcompetitors.

  • Recognise areas of development that support your strategic objectivesand aim to increase your market share.

  • Identify where leaders may be at risk from certain behaviours ormindsets and put measures in place to manage that risk.

aKumen can be integrated with different assessment solutions. There arethree core solutions available, and each targets individuals at differentlevels of leadership:


  • aKumen ‘plus’ – Executive

  • aKumen – Senior Manager
