WHY MANAGE COMPETENCY REQUIREMENTS?
We believe competency requirements represent not just the starting point and the DNA of competency management but of quality assurance and strategic HR. If you do not manage competency requirements – how can you drive performance or enforce standards at the point of care?
When capability really matters, it becomes clear that learning does not equal competency. This is the fundamental insight that drives the competency-based learning movement. The concept has its roots in healthcare education – and our mission is to make it a reality in the workplace.
Learning and development that starts with competency requirements:
- Is for clinical leaders, by clinical leaders. Because clinical leaders own the process, competency requirements are readily enforced.
- Is relevant, timely and resource-efficient. Because learning activities are adapted to the realities at the point of work, relying heavily on side-by-side training and other available resources.
- Carries operational excellence. Unlike other learning and development, it offers continuity in managing standards at the point of work.
- Enables a hub for all learning. It is the only way to create a unified view of competency compliance for managers and employees alike.
