Whether you are experienced at developing competency models or just want a better understanding of the domain, the seminal article Doing Competencies Well: Best Practices in Competency Modeling (Campion, Fink, Ruggeberg, Carr, Philips, Odman, 2011) provides useful guidance and best practices typically applied by practitioners. Competency modeling has quickly gained popularity so it is no surprise that the practice, development, and implementation of the models have surpassed the speed of research on its effectiveness. This article provides a glance on how research and practice can begin to coincide on the development and implementation aspect of competency modeling. In fact, we believe the article is so relevant and useful that we decided to list the best practices we apply to competency modeling. You will also see how we make these practices our own by adapting them to our organization.
