Standardized Assessment Centre does not lead to a selection of the most of the key qualifications of Key Account Managers, because no standardized tests exist. Therefore companies using the Assessment Centre method to select Key Account Managers have to design the Assessment Centre in that kind that it measures the necessary key qualifications and tasks. All the necessary activities regarding the pre-phase of contractual conclusions, like the Assessment Centre to the selection of the right person, develop Transaction costs which can have an impact to contractual transaction after a decision as well. How to design the AC to measure the key qualifications of Key Account Managers and to achieve by this way a minimization of the TAC is the main question answered in the assignment.
