4 Benefits of Competency Models
An integrated selection and development process starts by determining what success looks like in a specific job and then determining what capabilities (personality, motivations, skills, abilities, education, etc.) contribute to success.
We can help you identify what defines success in the job. Once that target is defined, each component of the process is designed so that all critical capabilities are measured
Critical capabilities are often defined as competency models.
A competency model
is the combination of skills, knowledge, and characteristics needed to perform well in a certain position.
Well, okay, but what does that mean for you?
Think about all the things that make someone good at their job within your company. Maybe your company needs someone who is tech-savvy, gets things done quickly, or can motivate other people. Regardless of what you need, those traits and skills are competencies, and all of those added together create a competency model.
Competence in any area combines many factors, including both innate and learned characteristics. Success in a competency area comes through the knowledge and understanding of these characteristics. Once you know, you can both build on your learned skills and knowledge and leverage your innate characteristics (such as natural abilities and personality characteristics) to improve job performance.
