Topic: The term competency is understood and manifested multiple ways. Competency programs can become complex.
This complexity leads to frustration during program implementation. Organizational leaders rebel at the amount of time taken to perform assessments, supervisors get frustrated determining who can really perform the work and wonder about the program’s value, and employees struggle to reach vague definitions of achievement.
Kent Nuttall presents a strategy to create competence and qualification structures that are simple while still differentiating personnel achievements. Competence programs, built on work output provide greater clarity of employee expectations and provide increased guidance for the creation of employee development strategies.
