1. let us see the dictionary meaning for competence. It will make clear all your doubts. competent means 1. adequately qualified or capable, 2. effective, 3. competently.
2. It obviously means knowledge necessary to do the job, skill required to carry out the job and a positive attitude.
3. A doctor or lawyer might be having a degree but lacking in communication skills required in court/with patient or even if he has both knowledge and skill he may not be willing to practice as lawyer or doctor. Hence he becomes ineffective.
I hope this much explanation is enough.
The dictionary definitions of skill and competency are as follows:
Skill: an ability to do an activity or job well, especially because you have practised it
Competency: an important skill that is needed to do a job.
However competency goes further from just not being a necessity to do a job but to excel in that job. Its more related to bringing success in a job.
