Competency Mapping - 360 Degree

CHR Started The Discussion:

Competency Mapping is a process of identify key competencies for an organization and/or a job and incorporating those competencies throughout the various processes (i.e. job evaluation, training, recruitment) of the organization. To ensure we are both on the same page, we would define a competency as a behavior (i.e. communication, leadership) rather than a skill or ability.

The steps involved in competency mapping with an end result of job evaluation include the following:

1) Conduct a job analysis by asking incumbents to complete a position information questionnaire (PIQ). This can be provided for incumbents to complete, or you can conduct one-on-one interviews using the PIQ as a guide. The primary goal is to gather from incumbents what they feel are the key behaviors necessary to perform their respective jobs.

2) Using the results of the job analysis, you are ready to develop a competency based job description. A sample of a competency based job description generated from the PIQ may be analyzed. This can be developed after carefully analyzing the input from the represented group of incumbents and converting it to standard competencies.

3) With a competency based job description, you are on your way to begin mapping the competencies throughout your human resources processes. The competencies of the respective job description become your factors for assessment on the performance evaluation. Using competencies will help guide you to perform more objective evaluations based on displayed or not displayed behaviors.

4) Taking the competency mapping one step further, you can use the results of your evaluation to identify in what competencies individuals need additional development or training. This will help you focus your training needs on the goals of the position and company and help your employees develop toward the ultimate success of the organization.

Competency Mapping to be done very intellegently in an industrial enviornment without giving dissatisfaction and a negative impact to workforce.
It also involves by assessing the emotional intelligence and emotional quotient of
the individual and assessing their current skills

I think, we (those that post queries) should do some work for ourselves by searching using Google. For example, I found this site for a good definition
What is Competency Mapping?

Please search CiteHr, if you have not done. Also, please try and give as much detail as you can about the scenario for which you want the questionnaire and what's the questionnaire for, etc.

Hello Kanika,

Just as I searched, if you also search the web using Google you will find the answer for your question. As a retired academic, that's what I have to do. I have no first-hand experience of implementing it.
