Topic:   Each person seems to have a personal definition of competency. And each company seems to have their own competency program structure, some that are quite complex. There are many stories of frustration about competency program implementation. 

Organizational leaders rebel at the amount of time taken to perform assessments, supervisors get frustrated determining who can really perform the work and wonder about the program’s value, and employees struggle to reach vague definitions of achievement. 

Kent Nuttall presents a strategy to create competence and qualification structures that are simple while still differentiating personnel achievements.  Competence and qualification programs, built on work outputs with simple structures, better clarify employee expectations and guide employee development strategies.
