Each organization has its own particular needs and situation that are difficult to address in a public workshop. On-Site programs can be customized to the special needs of an organization. Consulting assistance can be a larger component, technical competencies can be included, or organizational issues addressed.
Our 3-day Building & Implementing Competency Models Certification Workshop was modified to devote more time to plan the implementation of the various competency modeling approaches, and on the development of three high priority HR applications.
Tailored a 3-day workshop that combined the essentials of both the building competency models and building technical competencies sessions for the HR staff. The workshop also focused on developing a consistent approach for building models throughout the company.
"Workitect demystified the competency development process and gave us the confidence to move forward with our program."
Kelly Elizardo Director, Learning & Development
A 2-day working session to review the essentials of building competency models with the company's HRD staff. The second part of the program was to build expertise in how to explain and sell the benefits of competencies to clients and to facilitate a consistent process for building models throughout the company.
The company had started a process to build technical competency models for a number of roles within the organization. We developed and conducted a 1-day working session to review the essentials of technical competencies and use these principles to review and revise the work done to date.
Two 4-day on-site sessions for the staff that are charged with building models for their organization. The workshops included both building competency models and building technical models.
"This course is simultaneously practical, comprehensive, and intellectually rigorous. By providing the project methodology and modeling methodology, Workitect has given me all I need to succeed. I am ready to go!"
