Competency Analysis

Competency Analysis identifies the specific set of skills, behaviors and/or abilities that drive high performance.  Wayne State University’s Executive & Professional Development creates customized competency models based upon several sources of both internal and external data:

  • Strategic and business plans
  • External benchmarking data
  • Internal employee interviews and focus groups
  • Leadership input and involvement
  • Leading-edge research

Organizations that are equipped with a customized competency model make wiser new employee recruitment decisions, understand how to obtain increased employee and leadership performance and ultimately link specific behaviors to improved business results.
