Skills and competency development

Organisational change is pervasive and drives improvements in performance. However, changes that result in a number of new roles or changes to existing roles can lead to uncertainties in whether the right skills mix is apparent in the organisation.

We work with clients to help them to take stock of the what the teams and individuals offer to the organisation to contribute to the achievement of organisational goals. We do this by conducting skills audit to identify the gaps in the current skills mix. This allows us to perform a targeted analysis of development needs.

From this we can define the individual skills and behaviours that allow individuals to perform outstandingly and effectively in their role - a competency framework. This provides clear direction and support for individual role holders, and aligns individual behaviours with organisational objectives. Competency frameworks are considered to be an essential vehicle by which to achieve high business performance through focussing and individual capability and capacity.
