Steps to Creating an Effective Competency Management System

  • Purchase an intellectual property license to use our Competency Management Suite
  • Attend our Building Competency Models workshop
  • Develop your own competency framework, models, and HR applications
  • Provide employees with access to development tools such as the Competency Development Guide or eDeveloper™
  • Develop or purchase a HRMS (not offered by Workitect) to integrate and manage the system you have created. Most HRMS vendors give you the option of using your own dictionary instead of their generic one.

*Based on the original “job competence assessment” research and testing methodology developed by Dr. David McClelland and McBer & Company, as described in Competence at Work: Models for Superior Performance (ISBN 978-0471548096)
