Developing a Competency Framework - Learning Skills from

You're probably familiar with the phrase ‘what gets measured gets done.' Defining and measuring effectiveness – especially the performance of workers – is a critical part of your job as a manager. The question is: How do you define the skills, behaviors, and attitudes that workers need to perform their roles effectively? Some people think formal education is a reliable measure.

All of these are important, but none seems sufficient to describe an ideal set of behaviors and traits needed for any particular role. A more complete way of approaching this is to link individual performance to the goals of the business. Defining which competencies are necessary for success in your organization can help you do the following: Ensure that your people demonstrate sufficient expertise.

Helping children to discover what they are good at promotes healthy self-esteem and is essential to their future success. The children need to try many things before they gravitate toward a set of skills that involve their own abilities, therefore we will create opportunities for kids to explore different objects, activities and people. After a short introductory phase we will announce a competition. Our pupils will form international teams with members from all the partners, and work cooperatively with a vested interest in each other’s learning as well as their own. The teams will play games, carry out tasks, share their discoveries and champion each other, celebrate each other’s successes, and learn to work together regardless of ethnic backgrounds.

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills. Skills beyond school. Definition and Selection of Competencies website The importance of knowledge, skills, and competencies to individuals and society is widely accepted among policymakers in OECD countries.

Skills beyond school

At least at the discourse level, a well-educated, knowledgeable, highly qualified citizenry is seen as playing an eminent role in facing the challenges of the present and the future. To date, the major impetus in OECD countries for efforts in the area of key competencies has come from the business sector and from employers. From a purely economic viewpoint, competencies of individuals are seen as important because they contribute to: boosting productivity and market competitiveness;minimizing unemployment through developing an adaptive and qualified labor force; andcreating an environment for innovation in a world dominated by global competition.

From a broader social perspective, knowledge, skills, and competencies are important because of their contributions outside the domain of economics and work. Defining%2021st%20century%20skills.pdf. OECD. Andreas Schleicher, OECD Education Directorate Anyone wondering why knowledge and skills are important to the future of our economies should consider two facts.


First, jobs: employment rates are higher among people with more education than among those with less. This has continued to be the case during the crisis. Also, in those OECD countries where college education has expanded most over recent decades, learning differentials for college graduates have continued to rise compared with school leavers, for instance. Their pay did not decrease, unlike that of low-skilled workers.

This is a good, concrete argument for skilling up. For most of the last century, the widespread belief among policymakers was that you had to get the basics right in education before you could turn to broader skills.
