Competence management

Do you know if everyone in your company is in the right place?

Companies' capability and skills needs are changing rapidly. As part of the organisation's strategy, a vision of capabilities is needed as a differentiator of competitiveness, regeneration capacity and the ability to act as part of expanding ecosystems. The development of personnel emphasises the need to utilise everyone's expertise and potential.

It is not self-evident that your employees are in the very roles in which they are best placed to succeed and support your business. That's why it's important that you recognize your capabilities at the organizational level and build a plan to develop them. This will give every employee and team the support they need to develop towards their best.

Investments in competence management can be seen not only in the well-being of employees, but also throughout the company: by harnessing the know-how correctly, your company's ability to grow and renew multiplies.

A good partner is irreplaceable in this job. We map your company's expertise, find future competence needs and highlight your company's hidden talents. Together, we create policies and structures that ensure that every employee of yours can shine in their work – in the right place.

Competence management implements strategy

The central task of supervisors and management is to ensure the renewal and continuous learning of the organisation.

How to identify skills that support competitive advantage and competitiveness? How to put these skills needs into practice at individual and team level? How to support the self-driving of personnel in competence development and how to train supervisors to act as enablers of competence development?

Competence needs must be taken to everyday life and day-to-day operations, as goals for teams and individuals.

In our competence management coaching, we help supervisors and management to understand how they can strengthen expertise that supports the strategy and the continuous development of teams and individuals.

Competence management coaching themes

  • Competence and performance management based on strategic capability thinking and competences
  • The relevance of the job and the role of the manager in supporting it
  • Supporting self-driving in learning: individual responsibility for their own development and how the supervisor supports it
  • Supervisor's own development plan for continuous renewal of his/her own competence
  • Development and competence discussions

Competence assessment, skills maps and 360 assessments

Do you know where the skills that are central to your organization's future are?

The competence in the organisation must be identified, yet the identification should not be based on subjective assessment, but the current state of competence must be collected in several ways:

  • Company-specific competence maps based on strategic competence, which serve as a basis for competence assessment. Competencies can be assessed on a heat mapping basis: management creates a common picture of the current state of competence and a common vision of the target state of competence, identifying potential skills gaps, and creates an action plan to strengthen competence.
  • Individual-level competence is assessed with tailored competence-based 360 assessments, giving the person feedback from their supervisor, colleagues and team members and/or stakeholders on the current state of competence. Based on the evaluation results, the person draws up a personal development plan with the professional coach, either strengthening their strengths or focusing on skills that need to be acquired further.
  • 360 review of supervisors
  • Talent profile. Based on the customer's strategic competencies, we draw up a criterion and assess the person's potential through versatile personnel assessments in relation to the tailored criteria. Based on an in-depth talent profile, it is natural to continue the coaching process, which ensures that the individual's potential and strengths are realised in the best possible way.
