With the increased pace of change, fewer years on the job, employee desire for self-directed career development, and knowledge drain from retiring Baby Boomers, competency models are more critical for executing strategy than ever before.
Competency models identify what people in a particular role need to know and do so the organization can succeed and create a competitive advantage. They intrinsically motivate people by providing a road map for how to succeed in any position. You can’t take six to 12 months to build them, or they could be outdated on release. In this webcast, we’ll show you an Agile methodology for building a competency model in weeks, in a way most likely to be embraced and made actionable. You will learn:
steps to create the competency model, along with templates to help you do it how this process can help you protect the knowledge and best practices of those set to retire
how to make your competency models actionable and strategic.
