Competency frameworks –


I am working with a small charity working on health, reproductive and health rightsand advocacy,delivered through programmes and projects. I am developing a competency framework for them and was hoping there might be some off the shelf things I could look at and adapt rather than reinvent the wheel. Any suggestions of where to go for ideas and formats and ways to integrate with appraisal schemes etc......

  1. Competency Frameworks

    Although I have no “off the shelf” models to offer you, I have done quite a lot of work in this area and have recommended the following book on several occasions to others as a good source of information for people in a similar position to you.

    You might find it an interesting read and that it will spark a few ideas for you:-

    Competencies In Action by Jane Weightman – published IPD – ISBN 0-85292-557-3

    Interestingly enough, some of the case studies cited in the book relate to the authors experience of working with a Healthcare Trust and a regional health authority.

    Hope you find this useful!

    The book already recommended is good – don’t forget to consider whether the competencies are to/will reflect the current staus quo/recent history or are more dynamically aimed at developing the org towards a different future – in my experience also it is important to avoid managers and operators of appraisal systems seeing competencies as some sort of HR bureaucratic ‘toy’ bolted onto ‘real life’- happy to chat 020 8878 6422 – Iain Thomson
