A Building Competency Models workshop has been conducted on-site for Google, Air Canada, the U.S. Department of Defense, and other organizations. This workshop, and others, such as the Creating Technical Competencies workshop and Interviewing for Competencies workshop, are effective at training and certifying individuals and small teams to develop job competency models and HR applications. But, each organization has its own particular needs and situation that are difficult to address in a public workshop, even with an hour of individual consulting help that is a part of the BCM program. Onsite programs can be customized to the special needs of an organization. Consulting assistance can be a larger component, technical competencies can be included, or organizational issues addressed.
Other benefits include being able to:
- Evaluate, and possibly modify, past or existing model building approaches,
- Focus on strategy, planning, and implementation of specific applications
- Achieve synergy; prepare implementation team members to collaborate and support each other
- Ensure consistency in applying model building methodology
- Obtain cost-savings; training more people with no travel costs
Here are a few examples of on-site workshops and planning sessions that have been conducted by Workitect:
This 3-day workshop was tailored and conducted for HR and non-HR staff responsible for rolling out a project for Google Fiber that involved the staffing of a new organization to install a fiber-optic high speed internet and TV service in major cities throughout the USA.
Our 3-day Building Competency Models workshop was modified to devote more time to plan the implementation of the various competency modeling approaches, and on the development of three high priority HR applications.
Braskem (formerly Sunoco Chemical):
Tailored a 3-day workshop that combined the essentials of both the building competency models and building technical competencies sessions for the HR staff. The workshop also focused on developing a consistent approach for building models throughout the company.
“Workitect demystified the competency development process and gave us the confidence to move forward with our program.”
Director, Learning & Development
We developed and delivered a 2-day working session to review the essential of building competency models with the company’s HRD staff. The second part of the program was to build expertise in how to explain and sell the benefits of competencies to clients and to facilitate a consistent process for building models throughout the company.
We delivered two 4-day on-site sessions for the staff who are charged with building models for their organization. The workshops included both building competency models and building technical models.
“This course is simultaneously practical, comprehensive, and intellectually rigorous. By providing the project methodology and modeling methodology, Workitect has given me all I need to succeed. I am ready to go!”
