TOPIC: Establishing Competencies
LOGISTICS: January 28, 2015, 7:30-9:30am @ UNO Mammel Hall, room 117 (see link to parking pass below)
According to William J. Bradford author of Competency Models and Performance Management - Getting It Right , "The implementation of a competency framework into an organization is a complex process requiring advanced technical skill and organization development expertise. If it is seen as just another human resource process, disaster often ensues. Most get it wrong before they get it right and many wish they had invested more time and intellectual effort in considering the implications and managing the risks associated with the initiative. If the competency framework is coupled with a 360-degree multi-source feedback process, the situation can be very problematic. If linked to pay, the scenario becomes even more complex. This does not mean it is not a good ideaundefinedit means this is serious HR work requiring good analysis, critical thinking and creative design.
