Hi, thanks for visiting My name is Joy, I am the founder of Spectrain I work with customers to identify and develop competencies. You will find lots of examples of how I work with customers on this site. The drivers for my competency based approach to business development is first and foremost to ensure that people are effective in what they do and how they deliver, secondly I want to ensure that you benefit from learning and development activity that is focused upon your unique development needs and provides a measurable a return on investment.
I know how easy it is for incompetence to walk through the door as a result of poor recruitment practice,and how that incompetence is accommodated through ineffective approaches to performance management. I am also astounded at the amount of training and development that is purchased that fails to develop competence. So, whether you need an approach to training that develops the competence that your business needs, or a little support with competency based recruitment, perhaps guidance around how to implement a competency framework. Read on, identify how a focus on competence will benefit your business and please do contact me to explore some options.
Competency Based Learning Design
Employee competence is the foundation for business success. We design learning and development approaches that develop the specific competencies required in your business for sustainable success.
We Work With You to Identify, Develop, and Source Competencies
We want you to be confident that you are surrounded by the competence to achieve business objectives and provide you with a competitive advantage.
Our approach is refreshingly simple and thorough we won’t overwhelm you with complicated competency dictionaries we listen to understand what competency needs exist and how development of those competencies will contribute to measurable business outcomes.
We combine your knowledge of the business with research into future trends and best practice in your sector. We consider the competencies required in the context of the challenges that people currently face to identify the skills, behaviours and essential mindsets that will enable people to generate effective solutions to business issues.
Positive Correlation to Business Outcomes
The logic that every competency model is based on starts with the assumption that certain behaviours impact organisational outcomes, which drive business success. These behaviours are strengths and this is where we focus when identifying the competencies that are contributing to your success.
Simple and Effective Competency Models
An effective competency model needs to be thorough enough to describe the behaviours that will contribute to organisational success. The key to having people value, and utilise the model is to keep it simple.
We identify the strengths of competent performers in your business those that achieve tangible results for the organisation
We validate the competency by providing evidence of the link between the performance and its positive impact on business outcomes
We design simple yet effective competency frameworks that focus upon the core competencies required to effect change
We design competency based development events tailored to the needs of your business and focused specifically on developing the competencies required.
We support the integration of a competency based approach with existing HR processes including recruitment, performance management, learning and development
We provide you with the skills to map competencies, create frameworks and develop competency-based training.
It has been a pleasure to work with Joy, who gave us great insight and valuable guidance on our competency framework development journey. Joy demonstrated a wide knowledge on the subject which helped us enormously to create the finished product – Jaguar Land Rover’s first competency framework. Thank you!
