Developing Competency Models

Hire, develop, and promote the right people using competency models to identify key success factors.

Ever wished you could clone your most effective leaders?

You can come close by using competency models to clarify the skills and behaviors your best performers share so you can identify and develop those same characteristics in others.

OnPoint has helped dozens of companies, including AmeriGas, GlaxoSmithKline and Pep Boys, lay the groundwork for their leadership development programs using competency models.

We can partner with you to develop new competency models or assist at any point in the process, including:

  • Updating or enhancing your existing models
  • Validating your competency models to ensure they include skills and behaviors that are predictors of success
  • Working with your team to integrate your competency model into your human resource systems for hiring, development, managing performance, and succession planning

Our approach is collaborative, efficient and cost-effective, saving you time and money. When you have clearly defined what your best leaders have in common, you can hire, develop and promote more top performers like them!
