“The authors have taken competency modeling out of the domain of academics and social
scientists by creating a practical ‘how-to’ work that clearly and simply explains the steps
in developing and using competency models. I recommAnd this book to anyone whose
job includes the pinpointing and sharpening of relevant competencies, for themselves or
for others.” –Scott B. Parry, chairman, Training House

reader a blueprint for developing meaningful recruiting, performance measurement, and
succession planning systems. They succeed with a straightforward, pragmatic style, using
actual examples that make the book an easy read.” –Frank Ashen, senior vice president,

Book Description
How Do You Ensure that Employees Are Doing the Right Things?
Many of us ask, “What does it take to do a job well?” and stop there. But there’s more to
it than that.
What skills and knowledge are necessary for effectiveness in a certain job? Does the
employee have the appropriate skills and knowledge, or is some kind of training
necessary? Are these job expectations aligned with the culture and strategy of the
organization as a whole?
These questions are essential to performance improvement efforts. And competency
modeling is designed to help you find answers to questions such as these.
A competency model is . . . a descriptive tool that identifies the skills, knowledge,
personal characteristics, and behaviors needed to effectively perform a role in the
organization and help the business meet its strategic objectives.
