Competency Mapping Certification

Competency Mapping Certification

Competency Mapping is a process used to identify key competencies for an organization or a job, and then incorporate these competencies into the various internal processes of an organization. A competency is defined as a behavior, or a set of behaviors (i.e. communication, leadership) rather than a skill or ability.

Competency mapping certification conceives the required competencies and defines a competency framework by mapping the existing skills and competencies of the employees. It identifies gaps and then develops the competencies thereby providing an informed, systematic and measurable method for developing organizational capability.

The process of competency mapping allows us to articulate and evaluate what every employee brings to the table. This process greatly contributes toward job evaluation, recruitment, training and development, performance management, internal mobility, and succession planning. It brings a great deal of value to the organization.

Competency Mapping certification can help you with:

  • A competency-based approach
    allows an organization to understand its capabilities and the gaps to which it is exposed. A competency-based approach allows it to fine-tune all HR related downstream activities
  • Recruitment
    becomes more focused and the specific competencies required become clear.
  • Talent Management
    is easier with the skills being defined and the behaviors on which the employees are to be assessed are also clearly defined.
  • L&OD
    facilitates Learning and Development and Organizational Development.
  • A competency framework
    makes it easier for organizations to plan, strategize and implement to optimize overall organizational capabilities.

In short, Competency Mapping is a fundamental activity that drives capability development in an organization and helps it to be more strategic than its competitors.
