Abstract

While the use of competency models in organizations has been increasing in recent years, our understanding of how organizations are developing and using them is limited. This study will provide a better understanding of how organizations develop, present, and implement competency models. Specifically, our goal is to describe how competency models are developed and used, as opposed to prescribing how they should be developed and used. Human Resource and Industrial and Organizational Psychology professionals with experience in competency modeling will complete an online survey for this study. The survey asks participants to describe their use of competency modeling using Campion et. al. (2011)’s best practices as a framework. The researchers anticipate that the educational background and professional affiliations of participants will have an impact on the degree to which they follow the best practices. Results of the study will help practitioners and researchers gain a better understanding about how competency models are used and developed in various organizations.
