Competency Model : When Best to Start?

🚀  Should growing company invest in competency model to optimize their people development to prepare for their next stage of business growth?

Our thoughts…

Invest only when there’s willingness from the business to integrate the competency model with existing HR process to drive tangible outcome.

Areas that typically require tremendous change to make this work;
🔑 HR process & approach
🔑 People manager mindset & capability
🔑 Leadership buy-in

👉 All of the above, takes deep commitment & time.

This means stakeholder’s;
🔐 Understanding the potential impact of talent outcome to the business
🔐 Willingness to put in effort to change
…is critical for success of any such implementation.

Without the above, this will become just another HR exercise that has minimal impact to the business.

✋ In such situation, best NOT to start first. And better to wait for the right timing and buy-in, as the impact without such alignment is limited or worse, negative.
