Introduction to Competencies

However, in our craft, the term ability normally means either able to do or a special talent; while competencies relate more to expertise and experience. Competencies can be thought of as the state or quality of being well qualified to perform a task. A person gains competency through education, training, experience, or natural abilities. Klemp (1980, p21) defined competence as “an underlying characteristic of a person which results in effective and/or superior performance on the job.” While a more detailed definition is “a cluster or related knowledge, skills, and attitudes that reflects a major portion of one's job (a role or responsibility), that correlates with performance on the job, that can be measured with well-accepted standards, and that can be improved with training and and development (Parry, 1996, p50) While there are many definitions of competency, most of them have two common elements: David McClelland.

And as we thought about the excellent senior executives we have met, we observed that they are, in fact, all very focused on delivering results, and many of the best lower level managers are absolutely clear about strategy and vision.
