Competency models can identify what people in a particular role need to do for the organization to succeed, and act as a competitive advantage by providing each person with a roadmap on how to be great. This is especially important since learning and development (L&D) leaders’ are tasked with creating the best opportunity possible for learning transfer so that required skills are acquired and business objectives achieved. The key to this success: experiential, competency-based learning.

During this talk, your speaker, Tony Charles, chief executive officer of SkillDirector, will show you the process for mapping competency-based learning, including informal learning.

This session will provide easy-to-understand insights on:

  • Linking competency models to existing learning opportunities.
  • Using competency models to identify learning opportunities you need to develop.
  • Keeping your content mapping current.
