Dear Shimit,
I am no HR expert. I have taught Operations and Strategic Management related subjects and now concentrate on Reasearch Methodology and help how to get papers published, etc.
Please do not expect me to give answers; as I said before, I raise a lot of questions and give pointers. I am not underestimating you. Do not underestimate yourself and your capabilities. Like Hanumanji had to be reminded of his cabilities to fly, someone has to remind you that you can learn by yourself these days with the help of the web where most answers can be found.
Best wishes

HI shimit,

i read this entire discussion and ur dilemma on understanding what competency mapping is...
i did, rather am doin a project on Identification of Trng needs.. i m doing my mba hr too...
when i started out, i tried different methods to understand what to do.. i read up on a lot of sites, saw the questionnaires, bt none of it made any sense how to go about it practically,because it was all theory..

well what i did understand its a process, it should ideally begin with a job description, that states the KSAs, these are nothing but your competencies, so KSA = Competencies (this is my understanding, since HR uses a lot of jargons)

well its nt easy to decide on technical competencies if ur nt frm d bkground, either it will require a lot of wrk from ur side, or a lot of support n patience frm the managers, usually its the former, but i was lucky coz my managers in d cmpny r vry helpful...

anyway once you get the list of competencies per position per department in your orgn u set out to map it... what do u undrstnd by "mapping"? i see it as a school child whn we used to locate a city on the map of India.. that is mapping..
so nw u have to map the KSA of the employee, ie nthng bt rating him on a scale... u cn hv 2 ratings his proficiency and the other of the importance of the KSA to his job, when u multiply the 2 u get a number that indicates his competency level...

I used the gap betweent the standard and the current to identify whrere he requires trng.. therre are other uses of this method too.
all my reading on various sites help me undrstnd all this...
i think its right.. Seniors who read this post may possibly agree with it, or help me correct it....

You can read good book on competency by Spencer & Spencer viz., Competency at Work model for superior Performance.
Do let me know if you need any further clarification.

Dear Shimit,
Is that your first MBA project?
In none of your posts have you spelled the word 'Competency' correctly. I really wonder that being an HR student, you can't make the right searches and guide your way through the text-books. If you really want a healthy discussion on the topic (or any topic), you have to be crisp and clear in putting forward your query. Only then the seniors will be able to guide you!!
I suggest you to read the chapter and have (atleast) the basic knowledge of the concept. Books are the BEST source of knowledge.
Have a good day. And all the best for your project.

MAM, i have already gone thru that, the thing people r not trying to understand wat m looking for, i m looking for a practical example from a company or from a person who has performed the process of COMPITENSY MAPPING...
anyways its not ur fault...its all about attitude...
but still i'll appreciate ur reply..
