What is Competency Mapping?

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

By conceiving the required competencies, defining a competency framework, mapping existing skills and competencies of the employees, identifying gaps and then developing the competencies can provide a systematic and measurable method for developing organizational capability.

According to Boyatzis (1982) “Competency Mapping is a capacity that exists in a person that leads to behaviour that meets the job demands within parameters of organizational environment, and that, in turn brings about desired results.”

The process of competency mapping enables us to articulate what every employee brings to the table and the process greatly contributes towards job-evaluation, recruitment, training and development, performance management, internal mobility and succession planning.

Competency Mapping can help you with:

  • A competency-based approach allows an organization to understand its capabilities and the gaps it is exposed to. 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 becomes easier with the skills being defined clearly and the behaviours employees are to be assessed on.
  • Learning and Development and Organizational Development become easier.
  • A competency framework makes it easier for organizations to plan, strategize and implement to optimize overall organizational capabilities.

Why Competency Mapping?

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