||The selection and training of offshore installations managers. A survey of UK companies
||The Robert Gordon University, Business Research Unit, Kepplestone House, Viewfield Road, Aberdeen AB9 2PW, United Kingdom, June 1992. iv, 63p. 5 ref.
||A survey of the procedures used to select and train offshore installation managers (OIMs) working on UK oil and gas installations covered 38 companies, employing a total of 424 OIMs, that provided detailed information on their selection, training and assessment methods. The majority of OIMs are recruited internally. Selection decisions are based predominantly on previous performance on the OIMs ability to take command in an emergency, appraisal reports and managerial recommendations rather than more formal methods such as assessment centres or psychometric tests. Many of the companies surveyed are currently examining and refining their OIM selection, training and assessment procedures.
