At the final stage of the business game, they can offer the participants a job in their companies.

The developed methods were tested during the selection of candidates for the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI), the Federal Property Management Agency, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East, and the teams of organizers of large network projects implemented with the ASI’s support (such as WorldSkillsRussia and GlobalManagementChallengeRussia).

Between 2012 and 2015, pilot projects for open selection of candidates using the ASI’s methods have been implemented at the regional level. Some elements of the open selection technology have been integrated in the programs for additional education and professional certification of civil servants on the basis of the Russian Academy of Economy and Public Services under the President of the Russian Federation (a pilot project with the Russian Ministry of Science and Education, the Russian Ministry of Labor, and the State Committee for Academic Degrees and Titles).
In October 2014, winners of the open selection of professionals for the Information and Analytical Center for the Foreign Trade Activity at the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation were defined for 8 vacant positions of experts and senior experts in the departments of export support and domestic market protection. In March 2015, results of open selection were announced for the position of the general director of the Industry Development Fund (the Federal State Autonomous Institution “The Russian Fund for Technological Development”). It was one of the ASI’s largest open selections, where, at the first stage, 800 people competed for 1 vacant position. 200 of 800 received application forms were rejected according to formal criteria; 616 candidates were admitted to participation in the selection, of which 189 applications were selected for consideration, based on the position profile (experience, competencies, etc.).
Replication of the open selection methods at the regional level was continued in 2015. In the nearest future, it is planned to launch regional sectoral projects in at least 6 constituent entities of the Russian Federation and in at least 35 regions in 2016.
