Competencies are the measurable or
observable knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors (KSABs) critical
to successful job performance (Competencies, n.d.). They are popular in
training departments in that they are a part of training design.
Training designs must take into account: desired outcomes, conditions
and standards (UMUC, 2016). If clearly written, they can be used to
communicate the objectives of training to participants. After the
training, an evaluation should be used to gauge whether or not the
desired outcomes and or competencies have been mastered.
Competency models are related to job analysis in that
position-specific competencies are derived from a job analysis.
Generally, identifying the competencies tied to each job is the first
step in the job analysis process. Often, both the individual who
currently holds the job as well as the people who oversee the worker
within the position work together to determine which competencies are
necessary for success in the position (Schreiner, n.d.). Then they are
ranked by importance to determine which competencies are appropriate for
the employee in the position.
