    What Is a Competency Framework?

    A competency framework defines the knowledge, skills, and attributes needed for people within an organization. It establishes what each individual’s roles are and defines its own set of competencies needed to perform the job effectively.

    How to Use a Competency Framework?

    • Begin by opening a Creately workspace, select a competency framework template and invite key stakeholders to participate.
    • Start by determining the purpose of the framework. It’s important to set the context so managers and employees know the basis of what they are evaluating.
    • Next, gather as much information as possible about each role. Be clear about setting the parameters that evaluate employee competency levels.
    • Have conversations with individuals and team leads to determine the key competencies required for each role.
    • Gather information in multiple ways; sometimes questionnaires yield better responses.
