The book is otherwise flawless. It introduces the concept of a competency as "...behavior or actions that can be seen when a job is being done well." (p. 10). The presentation continues, refining this definition and showing us how competencies are developed, measured and used to benefit organizations and individuals. Several sections are particularly effective, including:
- The Difference Between Knowledge, Skill and Competency (p. 11)
- Different Types of Competency (p. 22)
- Developing Competencies (p. 34)
- Career Development Planning (p. 56)
- Competency-Based Interviewing (p. 79)
- Why Some Competency Initiatives Don't Work (p. 83)
It closes with a Further Reading section that is brief, but contains the important books on competencies that one should take a little longer to read. Many of the book's "slides" reference these works by page number, linking motivated readers to more thorough and wordier treatments of key topics.
This book, and the Management Pocketbook series, is highly recommended.
