Why Competency Models Matter
Competency models define the skills, knowledge, behaviors and attitudes that lead to high performance in a particular job.
According to the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD), competency models help “define what people need to know and do to be successful.”
Achieve Corporate Objectives
Competencies are important to individuals and to corporations. One of the hallmarks of a successful company is its ability to employ a high-performing workforce that demonstrates the right competencies to meet strategic objectives and drive business results.
A competency model is more than a list of skills. Strategically built competency models are based on job descriptions and link to performance and training.
