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. With a well-defined competency management strategy in place, employees better understand the types of skills, behaviors and knowledge they need to align with and support their organization.
Many companies that undertake a competency initiative themselves experience frustration as they begin to investigate the options available to them and realize:
- The process is more complex than they had anticipated
- They lack the expertise or staff resources to expeditiously implement
- The task of mapping thousands of learning titles to competencies is intensive
Steps to a Competency Strategy
To adopt an effective competency strategy, businesses must follow this four-step process:
Select a competency model
- Define the competencies for their specific organization
- Create job descriptions
- Map learning to the job descriptions and the competencies
The final step, mapping learning to competencies, is critical. By executing on this step, companies make it easier for employees to know exactly what learning they should pursue to meet the competency requirements of their job. Equally important, the company is assured that its learning content investments are strategically linked to its business goals.
