Competency-Based Training and Assessment Center: Strategies, Technology, Process, and Issues

Competency-Based Training and Assessment Center: Strategies, Technology, Process, and Issues Issue Overview Competency-Based Training and Assessment Center: Strategies, Technology, Process, and Issues Michael Burnett Jacqueline V.

The term sometimes refers to outputs of competent performers and sometimes refers to underlying character- istics that enable an individual to achieve outstanding performance (Dubois & Rothwell, 2004; McLagan, 1997). And in the expertise literature, competency means only safe performance. Most definitions of competency, however, relate to exemplary performers or performance in a specific job or job level, (Boyatzis, 1982), whereas a relevant term, core competency is tied to strategic, future- oriented, collective functions in organizational level (Hamel & Prahalad, 1994; Prahalad & Hamel, 1990).

Abstract

Issue Overview Competency-Based Training and Assessment Center: Strategies, Technology, Process, and Issues Michael Burnett Jacqueline V. Dutsch The term competency has multiple definitions. The term sometimes refers to outputs of competent performers and sometimes refers to underlying character- istics that enable an individual to achieve outstanding performance (Dubois & Rothwell, 2004; McLagan, 1997). And in the expertise literature, competency means only safe performance. Most definitions of competency, however, relate to exemplary performers or performance in a specific job or job level, (Boyatzis, 1982), whereas a relevant term, core competency is tied to strategic, future- oriented, collective functions in organizational level (Hamel & Prahalad, 1994; Prahalad & Hamel, 1990).
