Competency Assessment Workbooks

A competency assessment is not a static process or just another checklist. Assessments can be designed to balance between the skills and elements needed on the job in conjunction with the underlying characteristics that will allow individuals to be able to merge the technical, leadership, managerial, social and interpersonal competencies. The competency assessment workbooks are a way to assess individuals on a set of competencies (based on a competency model of the job) that are critical to job and organizational success. They focus on the end state and goals that define successful behaviors that are expected of personnel within a particular career series.
