Using our online tool and with our input and expertise, yes, you’ll have your own company specific assessment tool. This is something we do together – your organisational and role knowledge and our expertise in competency assessment and unique technology.
By assessing the level of skill across competencies critical for performance in a role, then selecting training relevant to the competency needs.
That’s what makes this CareerDynamix assessment so different. They will be your competencies – not as defined in a book or by another company. As defined by you.
Competency measurement is a great way to establish management potential and also provide a basis for training needs to enhance that potential.
Yes – that’s the basis of our business – designing unique assessment and measurement tools which are appropriate only for your roles in your business.
Defining the competency as your organisation defines it - not a cookie cutter model, designing the assessment with scenarios relevant to your organisation and independent assessment. By engaging content matter experts in the development of your critical performance competencies, we add reliability and relevance to your competency testing. Reliability depends primarily on the quality of the competency assessment construction and our expertise combined with your knowledge of your organisation create that quality.
We believe that it removes subjectivity from the selection or evaluation process. Whether you are assessing internal staff for management potential, undergoing a strategic review of organisational competencies, recruiting or measuring training effectiveness, objective review is a very useful tool.
Cookie cutter assessments generally use their definition of a competency and non-specific scenarios which may have no relevance to your business. That does not provide valid, reliable competency measurement for performance in your role, in your organisation. If you want validity and reliability and a defensible solution, you need a customised assessment.
Competencies can be measured by providing a scenario relevant to your business and offering the person taking the test several options for actions they would take in that situation. Their selection of specific options allows you to measure their ability in a manner relevant to how you define a competency, how you want them to behave. This makes the competency evaluation valid for a role within your organisation and can provide for example, a defensible reason for selection.
It’s all about defining what success looks like, what you need to do to get there, how your staff have to perform and what competencies or skills they need to meet those individual targets and organisational goals. You can’t manage what you don’t measure and CareerDynamix can help you measure.
