How to Accelerate Learning Transfer Through Competency-Based Learning

Thursday, February 4, 2016 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Cheryl Lasse, Managing Partner, SkillDirector

Competency models identify what the organization needs people in a particular role to do in order for the organization to succeed and create competitive advantage. They intrinsically motivate people to achievement. In essence, they provide each person with a road map for how to be great. The responsibility of the talent and learning and development teams is to provide the best chance for learning transfer to occur so that business results follow. If the competency models define the required skills, then you need to make sure you have, or create, competency-based learning.

In this webcast, we’ll show you the process for mapping models to learning. You’ll learn how to:

  • Link competency models to existing learning opportunities.
  • Use competency models to identify learning opportunities you need to develop.
  • Keep your mapping current.
