How to Use Standard Competency Models to Accelerate Learning Transfer

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Cheryl Lasse, Managing Partner, SkillDirector

The responsibility of the talent development function is to provide the best opportunity for learning transfer to occur, such that the required skills are acquired and business results follow. Competency models identify what the organization needs people in a particular role to do so the organization can succeed and create a competitive advantage. They motivate people by providing a road map for how to succeed in any position. There are three steps to accelerating learning transfer with competency-based learning:

  1. Create a competency model.
  2. Make your competency model actionable.
  3. Accelerate learning transfer through competency-based, personalized learning.

However, creating competency models is perceived as heavy lifting, particularly in large organizations. That’s where standard competency models come in. What if you could use a standard competency model instead of creating one? Then you could complete all three steps and accelerate learning transfer in just weeks.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • the components of a standard competency model
  • how to make it actionable in weeks
  • how to accelerate learning transfer, leveraging the 70-20-10 framework.
