In our business training and business consultancy practice we regularly advise clients on the best ways to develop the competency of their organisation. We’d like to share our approach with you here.
First though, we need to clarify what competency is. At the organisational level, core competency results from deploying specific behaviours, skills and methods that deliver additional value to the customer. These, together with organisation resources, give an organisation capability to maintain competitive advantage and access a wide variety of markets. Core competency links directly to strategic success.
Organisational core competency rests on individuals acquiring and using those strategically aligned behaviours, skills and methods at work. What people do drives what the organisation achieves. Smart organisations know what are the behaviours, skills and methods they need for strategic success, and invest heavily in bringing them into play.
So, how do smart organisations step that out? Here’s how:
If you’re responding to training needs without a competency framework, inventory, or analysis to reveal priority needs, then you need help. Your current investment may not be aligned to strategy and may not be supporting organisation core competency. That needs to be fixed, fast.
At ODI our core competency lies in partnering with clients to build their organisational competency and improve their results. We have the consultants, facilitators and coaches to build frameworks, administer 360-degree and other reviews, identify needs, provide trainingsolutions that change skills and behaviours and improve results, and measure and report outcomes at every step.
Talk to Kyran or Nicky on 03 943 2373 about how ODI can help you build competency in your organisation.
