Looking to Create A Model for Organizational SuccessAssess Competency Modeling or Strategic Success Modeling (SSM) is a process by which an organization can easily develop a targeted competency model for a position or group of positions, or can update an existing competency model. Use our unique process to translate business strategy in HR practices – using a common language to define the behaviours that are necessary to successfully execute strategy.
With the Optimal Assessment Process and the Assess suite of tools, once a competency model has been created it can be loaded into the Assess on-line system. Candidates – both internal and external can log into the system and complete Assess, a business assessment instrument that measures 24 personality traits in three major categories – Thinking, Working and Relating. The Assess system provides an objective way to measure individuals against the behaviours critical to organizational success and can be used to improve the following processes:
- Selection – Providing a clear target for hiring practices will improve the likelihood of hiring the right person for the right job
- Development – Making development actionable and understandable by providing developmental activities that are linked to skills, knowledge and characteristics that will lead to optimal performance
- Training – linking training to competencies (success), maximizing the return on investment of training dollars
- Performance Improvement – clarifying work expectations using a common language and linking competencies to goals
- Succession Planning – adding objectivity in determining readiness for a role; identifying gaps and focusing training and development to help close those gaps.
