"Create a Competency Model and Perform a Competency Assessment to Identify Skill Gaps"

with  Cheryl Lasse

You can’t upskill or reskill without knowing the requirements for a role. Those requirements are defined in a competency or capability model. When people do a competency assessment, it identifies individual skill gaps that help them know how to upskill and reskill for their current or future job so they can succeed. In aggregate, skill gaps and proficiency data help executives pursue the best and most achievable strategy.

This webcast will explore the results from ATD's latest research, which included a survey of 664 talent development professionals and interviews with industry leaders.


In this session, you'll learn how to: 

  • Rapidly create a competency model (along with templates and instructions)
  • Perform a competency assessment


This webinar is being produced by ATD and sponsored by SkillDirector.
