STUDY A STUDY ON COMPETENCY MAPPING Aakash D. Patel ABSTRACT: Competency mapping is a process of identifying key competencies for a particular position in an organization, and then using it for job-evaluation, recruitment, training and development, performance management, succession planning, etc. Competency based talent management can improve both productivity and performance by identifying key characteristics of top performers and how those traits differ from average employees. These characteristics in turn can filter in a set of core competency profile that consistently leads to successful workforce. Thus the HR department should be alerted about the need for competency mapping & this process of competency mapping should be carried out in the organization on the regular basis both for the benefit of employees and for the organization. KEY WORDS: Competency, Competency Mapping, Employee, Growth, and Gap INTRODUSCTION Competencies refer to skills or knowledge that lead to greater performance. These are formed through an individual and organization’s knowledge, skills and abilities and provide a framework for distinguishing between poor performances through to exceptional performance. Competencies can apply at organizational, individual, team, and occupational and functional levels. Competencies are individual abilities or characteristics that are key to effectiveness in work. Competencies are the characteristics of an employee that lead to the demonstration of skills and abilities, which result in effective performance within an organizational area. Once the job requirements have been clarified then competency interviewing helps interviewers look for evidence of those requirements in each candidate. For people already in jobs, competencies provide a way to help identify opportunities for growth within their jobs. Competencies are…...

...Competency Mapping Introduction A lot is going on in recent times on the issue of competency mapping. A lot of resource is spent and consultants are invited to do competency mapping. Competency mapping is gaining much more importance and organizations are aware of having good human resources or putting the right people on right job. Competency mapping is important and is an essential exercise. Every well managed firm should have well defined roles and list of competencies required to perform each role effectively. Such list should be used for recruitment, performance management, promotions, placements and training needs identification. In performing or carrying out work, it is essential that the required job skills first be articulated. This information not only helps to identify individuals who have the matching skills for doing the work but also the skills that will enhance the successful performance of the work. Yet often to perform well, it is not enough just to have these skills. It is also critical to complement the skills with the necessary knowledge and attitudes. For e.g. the necessary knowledge will enable an individual to apply the right skills for any work situation that will arise while having the right attitude will motivate him to give his best efforts. These skills, knowledge and attitudes required for the work are usually collectively referred as competencies. What is Competency?

...maps work so well because they work with two sections of our memory, which are the imagination and association. He said that mind mapping is a special form of note-taking and planning that work with your brain to make it easier for you to remember things. We must use colors and images to help get our imagination whirring and the way we draw them with words or images resting on connecting, curvy lines or branches , that will help our memory make strong associations. Mind maps will help us to make a distinction between our mental storage capacity, moreover,it will assist us to demonstrate our mental storage efficiency, storing data efficiently, and multiplies our capacity. Mind maps may also aid recall of existing memories. By presenting ideas in a radial, graphical, non-liner manner. Its encourage a brainstorming approach to planning and organizational tasks. Though the branches of a mind map represent hierarchical tree structures, their radial arrangement disrupts the prioritizing of concepts typically associated with hierarchies presented with more linear visual cues. This orientation towards brainstorming encourages users to enumerate and connect concepts without a tendency to begin within a particular conceptual framework. It is also known as spider-gram, that are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as aid in study, organization, problem solving, and decision making. 1.1 Statement of the Problem Successful case teaching requires......

Conformal Mapping

...SOME PROBLEMS IN CONFORMAL MAPPING D. C. SPENCER 1. Introduction. Attention will be confined to a group of problems centering around so-called schlicht functions—that is, functions regular in a given domain and assuming no value there more than once. The type of problem we consider involves determination of precise bounds for certain quantities depending on the function/, as ƒ ranges over the schlicht functions in question. Since, for suitable normalization of the functions at some fixed point of the domain, the resulting family of functions is compact or normal, the extremal schlicht functions always exist and the problem is to characterize them. Interest was focused on this category of questions by the work of Koebe in the years 1907-1909, who established for the family of funct i o n s / o f the form ƒ(z) = z+a2Z2+aszz+ • • • , schlicht and regular in \z\ < 1 , a series of properties, among them the theorem of distortion bearing Koebe's name. This theorem asserts the existence of bounds for the absolute value of the derivative ƒ'(s), these bounds depending only on \z\. Further efforts were directed toward finding the precise values of the bounds asserted by Koebe's theorem, but success was not attained until 1916 when Bieberbach, Faber, Pick and others gave a final form to the theorem of distortion. At the same time the precise bound for | a2\ was given, namely 2, and the now famous conjecture was made that \an\ ^n for every n. Since 1916 this group of problems has......

Based on geo-mapping, the software selects the zones that are not saturated with children clothing stores, and correspond to the demographic and social characteristics of the brand. It is then possible to narrow where to implant new stores. • A website especially for retailers to place orders over directly on the Internet. 2) How does geo-mapping software help the company grow? Explain how sales representatives use the results of the geo-mapping system. In the case of Tea Collection, we have seen that geo-mapping software helped the company to target new selling area, by sorting zones by level of activity, saturation rate of children clothes and demographic specificities. Geo-Mapping is one of the most popular data representation techniques as it allows companies analyse an area without spending too much money having to travel to that location and carrying out surveys wasting precious time and money. Geospatial analysis captures, stores, manipulates, analyses and presents all types of spatial or geographical data, using spatio-temporal information, according to what the user is looking for. The data representation is quite interactive, where the user can define the types of data they want to see, and the map will be generated accordingly. It then displays the data on the map. It is a very good time and money saver, as the company doesn’t have to do the study itself. It gives the company access to a lot of......

Brain Mapping

...Brain Mapping Kaitlin Pollock Brain Mapping The brain controls thinking, moving, or any actions that are taken by a single person. Actually figuring out how the brain works is a very interesting topic. One way they do this is by using brain mapping. Brain mapping is the study of the brain using imaging, and they use these imaging machines to make a map of the neurons and synapses in our brain to figure out why people are the way they are. The history of brain mapping is important to understanding how far it has come today. There are many different machines that are used to take a look at the brain. When treating a patient there are different ways doctors can go about using brain mapping. This field just as any other field, is growing every day and never know what tomorrow could bring. Brain mapping has brought us many accomplishments in the medical field, understanding how it got there is the first step to the process. Taking a look at history can be boring at times, but when talking about the brain nothing is boring. In the early 1900’s is when humans first started to realize that our brain did a lot of the work compared to the rest of our bodies. People were shocked because how can that be, something you cannot see is the whole reason why you are the way you are. After this was discovered people wanted to take a look at this and start understanding it more. The first imaging machine ever used was the X-Ray machine in 1895. This machine is what gave the idea of......

Competency Mapping

...COMPETENCY MAPPING A competency is an underlying characteristic of an individual which enables him/her to deliver superior performance in a given situation. Competencies consist of clusters of knowledge, attitude and skill set. Competency mapping is the assessment of employee skill set as an individual and as part of a team. Competency mapping is a process of identifying key competencies for a particular position in an organization, and then using it for job-evaluation, recruitment, training and development, performance management, succession planning, etc. Competency mapping is about identifying behaviors and personal skills which distinguish excellent and outstanding performance from the average. It also involves identifying key competencies required by a team at a lower level and by the organization as a whole to achieve desired results. Competency mapping generally involves examining two areas i.e. emotional intelligence and other individual strengths like decision making, team work, performing under pressure etc. Steps in Competency mapping 1) Role Competencies To start at the basic level we need to understand and define role and role competencies mean a set of competencies required to perform a given role, each competency further has a skill set. a)  Identification of Role Competencies i) Structure & list of roles. ii) Definition of roles. iii) Job description. iv) Competency requirement. b) Structure and List Roles: i) Organizational structure study and......

Mapping

...Prof. Arthur Archer 01/13/12 Mapping The author’s definition of mapping goes far and beyond the basic definition of the word. From the first sentence of his paper, James Corner sets up the reader and accurately introduces his intentions of redefining what mapping is; “Mapping is a fantastic cultural project, creating and building the world as much as measuring and describing it.” The introductory paragraph mentions the “agency” of mapping. It is not until later in the reading that one begins to understand what is meant by the “agency”. The intentions become clearer once we define the term agency. The dictionary Merriam-Webster defines the operation as “the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power” and in an instrumentality sense: “a person or thing through which power is exerted or an end is achieved”. So as Mr. Corner later describes maps have an immense power over us, of how we view the world, what things are important to us, and in turn the maps we create have the power to guide us in certain direction, or from a certain point of view. At times Corner speaks about agency of mapping as if he feels that it should become a field of study as a whole, because of all the different elements that it envelopes; the study of natural processes and historical context to name a few. That the creation of a map should not be simply to record or trace. A map is a collection of data that represents information gathered during mapping. According to Corner a map is......

... Sheryl Smith Argument Mapping PAD 520 Dr. Glenn Starks October 26, 2015 Create an argument map based on the influence diagram presented in Case 1.3 and complete all the criteria provided in the exercise, beginning with claim. Claim: “The U.S. should return to the 55-mph speed limit in order to conserve fuel and save lives. Information: Authorities consider reducing highway speed from 70-mph to 60-mph could reduce gasoline consumption between 2% and 3%. Which would explain the price reduction at least by 10%. With today’s prices at 38 cent a gallon. However, a lower speed limit saves approximately 167,000 barrels of oil per day and would save approximately 6,400 lives a year.” (Dunn, William N. (2012), Para. 3. P. 24). Warrant 1: While reducing the speed limit can increase the fuel efficiency on the vehicles. Backing: Some cars are already made with fuel injection while driven between 30-mph and 60-mph. Mileage will drop noticeably if driven over 65 mph. Slowing down would reduce the amount of gasoline used as well as limitation grants. On a central standpoint these changes will cost less. Warrant 2: Reduced speed limit will also decrease the loss to of aid due to increasing gasoline prices. Backing 2: Reduce the number of victim will also reduce the governments cost of medical care. Objections: Shortening the speed will rise travel time as well as leading to traffic jams on major highways. Claim: “The U.S. should return to the 55-mph speed limit in order to......

In 1974, the government passed the National Maximum Speed Law, which confined the most extreme allowable vehicle speed farthest point to 55 miles for each hour (mph) on every single interstate street in the United States. As indicated by the Environmental Protection Agency, "you can accept that every 5 mph you drive more than 50 mph resemble paying an extra $0.25 per gallon for gas, in extra; driving every vehicle achieves its ideal efficiency at an alternate velocity; gas mileage for the most part reductions quickly at paces above 50 mph"(colostate.edu).
