Competency Framework Software

SkillStation provides the functionality to express, define and assess capability and proficiency against a range of competencies. The very first step is for the organisation to develop a range/suite of competencies which underpin the delivery of the product(s) and/or service(s) delivered and in doing so align with your strategy and objectives.

The illustration below shows categories of competence that ought to be considered and developed for any organisation regardless of sector or size.

Core competencies

Core competencies fulfil three criteria:

  1. Provide and maximise potential access to a wide variety of markets
  2. Should make a significant contribution to the perceived customer benefits of the end product/service
  3. Difficult to imitate by competitors

For example, a company's core competencies may include precision mechanics, fine optics, and micro-electronics. These help it build cameras, but may also be useful in making other products that require these competencies.

Generic competencies
Includes competencies such as the induction/on-boarding process, QSHE training, and other competencies that affect all employees, regardless of hierarchy, role and location.
Technical competencies
Primarily focused on the technical capabilities and tasks related to each role/function, and often influenced by the sector in which you operate.
Leadership & Management competencies
An area often overlooked or poorly defined, but critical to the success of any organisation. It is the managers and leaders who set the strategic direction, and manage the resources required to deliver/execute the plan and objectives.
Behavioural competencies
Define how you deliver your product and/or service, and can often help differentiate you amongst your competitors. For example, employees demonstrating the right behaviours can be essential, when it comes to customer service and satisfaction.
Value competencies

These underpin the Core competencies, and may include attributes such as:

  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Professionalism
  • Proactiveness
  • Openness

Whilst these terms are simply words, it’s important to contextualise them in terms that others can understand and assess their own or others capabilities against. For exmaple,

  • Can be trusted to handle sensitive and confidential information
  • Able to earn and elicit trust from others by own personal behaviour
  • Aware of the amount of trust that is present in any interaction
  • Worthy of the trust of colleagues, clients and stakeholders

No matter where you are starting on your journey or your level of maturity in terms of competency management, Think Eleven and SkillStation will support you through every step of the process.
