What is competency?
Competence is the power to perform things efficiently. A regulated need of the individual to do a specific job successfully is called competence. It is a combination of knowledge, skills, and behavior used to enhance the performance. More generally, it is an outlook in achieving the specific role appropriately. Competency has various characteristics, types, and level of applications.
Competency mapping- Introduction
Competency mapping is one of the advanced levels of application. Competency mapping recognizes an individual’s strengths and weaknesses. The aim is to enable the person to better understand oneself and to point out where career development efforts need to be directed.
It majorly involves the nature and scope of particular job role, the necessary talent, required knowledge level and behavioral capacities require applying on the specific work role. It plays a vital role in appointing, recruiting and treasuring the right people. When the competency required for particular position is mapped, an accurate job profile is created.
Competency mapping identifies the precise set of capabilities and proficiency levels needed for every role in the organization. It is stated as a process of identifying the key attributes and essential skills necessary for each position and process within the company. Motive, Traits, Skills, Knowledge, and Self-concept (self-image or self-attitude) are the most important individual characteristics of individual in a competency. Competency mapping is the process through which one approaches and determines one’s strength as an individual worker.
To focus on better performance, to improve time management and to build the competition in a core, we require competency mapping. The two main stages for competency mapping involve Job Analysis and Behavioral event interview.
- In the stage of Job Analysis, the company needs to list core competency requirements for the job concerned. The next step should be of a competency scale for the job on the parameters previously identified. Taking it one step further by using the evaluated results to give additional training to the employees which will help to focus on training needs on the goals of position and company, resulting in ultimate development and success.
- A behavioral interview is designed in a way to collect information about past behavior. As past performance is key predictor of future behavior. This type of interviews attempts to uncover past performances by asking open ended questions Each questions help the interviewer to better understand your key skill area required for role position, through your experiences.
It enhances the understanding of development and individual gets necessary tools to take their own responsibility for overall development and success. It gives managers a tool to empower them to develop the people
