plz dont be confused about competency mapping. it is not at all difficult. the term appears glitzy though.
competencies are of three types, namely
specific - these competencies are essential to everyone in that dept.
core - these competencies are exclusive to the position holder.
Develop a list of competencies that are available like critical thinking, analytical ability, written skills, oral communication, time management, goal setting, conflict management, etc. Define each competency
All u should now do is, identify the level of employees under study. that means, whether u r studying entry level managers, or sr. managers or specialists or so on.
from the list generated, identify, the generic, specific and core for the positions under study. Each competency should be accompanied by behavioral indicators. for example,
CONFLICT MANAGEMENT: Anticipates or seeks to resolve confrontations, disagreements, or complaints in a constructive manner.
Recognizes the potential for conflicts, confrontations, or disagreements.
Resolves conflicts, confrontations, or disagreements in a constructive manner.
Addresses formal and informal complaints from employees.
Addresses formal and informal complaints from persons other than employees (e.g., customers, suppliers).
Attempts to resolve employee complaints.
Attempts to resolve complaints from persons other than employees.
Now, examine their job profiles or job descriptions. develop the competencies required for each position from the list u developed in terms of generic, specific and core/key competencies and draw a table with rows and colums with positions understudy on the top and list of competencies generated for each position on the left and tick or cross most essential, essential and least essential.
any doubts, call me.
