Why Use Competency Analysis?
To support HPWS
Traditional job descriptions (with their lists of specific duties) may actually backfire if a high-performance work system is the goal.
Maintain a strategic focus
Describing the job in terms of the skills, knowledge, and competencies the worker needs is more strategic.
Measurable skills, knowledge, and competencies are the heart of any company’s performance management process.
