Performance Excellence Through Power of Competence

A competency is an underlying characteristic of the person that leads to or causes effective or superior performance.” – Richard Boyatzis

The corporate world is witnessing a transformational shift in terms of rethinking strategic intervention for organizations to adopt and sustain in the competitive environment. What gives the organization a competitive edge is acquiring/possessing a set of competencies by its valued human capital to sail through turbulent times.

Accordingly, the need for identifying, assessing and nurturing competencies critical to the organization success cannot be overemphasized. Therefore, competency mapping has become the need of the hour.
