thanx for the comment. Actually people are generally very scared when they are asked to do a competency mapping. There are so many inter-related competencies and their meanings and further attributes are still more confusing.
So I thought of putting these competencies in easy and layman language so that it is understood by all.
I m in the process of making a comprehensive competency dictionary for use in induction, assessment and promotion structure.
it seems tht u have indepth knowledge about competency mapping
Actually i m currently working as an HR Trainee for my summer intership with a printing company and i have been asked to get the competency dictionary
So if at all you could help me wiht anyhtg then please mail me at
Thanks & Regards
If you want to prepare the competency dictionary for the organiztion, then you first need to list out the competencies required for that organization, then write their definitions and write the behavior indicators for the same. You can write the behavior indicators in two ways:
1. By writing positive and negative indicators
2. by defining levels of behavior
for any help you can write to me at
I am taking acievement orientation.
