LeadershipWorld-class coaches and mentors for you, and leadership and skills development for your team.

IT managers and CIOs, perhaps more than any other executives in an enterprise, feel the uncertainty that the future brings. Changes in technology are constant, necessary skill sets seem to change daily, and employee turnover and retirements continue to add to talent loss. In addition to current and upcoming projects and trying to keep internal (and external) customers satisfied, IT executives need to develop new leadership capabilities, build new skill sets, and navigate the corporate political landscape, while making sure that their teams continue to have the skills necessary to do their jobs and to advance their own careers.

Skills and Competency Management:

Aging skill sets, retirement, new technologies, mergers, culture changes, budget constraints, and other factors put numerous companies at risk for talent loss. Yet, many ignore the most fundamental solution to address the threat of under-qualified staff, establishing a skills-based organization. An agile, appropriately skilled workforce will not only provide a significant return on investment, but also stimulate people to be more motivated, productive and fulfilled. And, most importantly, talent will be available to capitalize on growth opportunities. More effective resource management, focused training and development, clearer career opportunities, and improved performance management are just a few of the results of an effective skills-based management program.

Our Experts have extensive experience in skills and competency management including implementation and deployment of skills training. We adhere to a rigorous and proven approach to skills-based management programs. Building a skills-based organization starts by proving its value and return on investment. Skills identified as core to business goals are linked to positions and process roles. Standards for incumbents clearly identify requirements for success. These skills standards flow throughout the organization in a chain that includes recruitment, assessment, career development, training, performance and succession planning, and assurance that people understand what is required of them as they join the organization, conduct their assignments, identify career opportunities and more.
