Competences are not rubbish! They can be the key to turn learning into superior performance

Garry is back, this time to talk about his approach to using competences in learning and development.

I would guess that competences are not used that much in your organisation, and if they are, they are only dragged out for performance reviews and little else.  Even then, if my experience is anything to go by, they probably don’t really drive workplace behaviour or performance improvement, and maybe they feel more like a tick-box exercise that HR make you do.

It needn’t be thus.

Competences can be really useful! Well written ones, with good descriptors of effective and ineffective behaviours, can be a great guide for superior performance and an invaluable tool in learning needs analyses and learning design.
