Address Needs Across the Organization
Everyone has many tasks that they need to accomplish, and desired skills to be able to do so competently. Our system helps bridge this gap, to compile and create competencies in a logical way that institutionalizes enterprise employee knowledge.
We found that many training plans operate within a vacuum and are not formulated from the top down and to address needs of the whole organization. Our system allows organizations to create competencies and map them to departments, role, locations, and other segments across the enterprise.
Caters to a Variety of Learning Methods with a Formal and Informal Approach to Learning
We believe that individuals should learn skills in the way that best suits their learning style. The Institute for Learning Styles Research has identified seven styles in which people learn. These include:
1. Print: Printed or written words.
2. Aural: Refers to listening.
3. Visual: Seeing visual depictions such as pictures or graphs.
4. Haptic: Refers to sense of touch.
5. Interactive: Refers to verbalization.
6. Kinesthetic: Whole body movement.
7. Olfactory: Refers to sense of smell and taste.
We created a system that can address any of these methods, and allow competencies to be completed with multiple methods for individuals. In this way, each person can learn to their most natural preference. We also know that organizations do a lot of training informally that does not get embraced or documented. People learn throughout the day, not only when they are taking a test! Our system allows for all day to day learning, whether experiential, mentorship, or peer to peer, to be captured and documented formally within a software system.
Breaks Down Silos Between Business Functions
As we studied organizations it was clear that many different departments operate independently of each other, even though there is frequent overlap. One example would be an internal safety trainer who needs to train people in many different departments. This person has a crucial responsibility, but has little authority over the people he or she is responsible for training!
Our software breaks down these silos, and allows for greater transparency if an organization chooses between interdependent areas of the organization, such as quality, HR, health and safety, operations, and more. This type of openness gives standardization and a competitive advantage to the large and growing organizations who do not always have the luxury of on-site training or responsibility.
Unique Deployments and Custom Work for Each Business as Necessary
We have a belief that software should not dictate business processes, but that your software should be able to do business the way you want to. Our platform is flexible and allows you to recreate your organization and employee skills in any way you choose.
And in keeping with our heritage of custom software, we can work with you to build a unique, one of a kind instance that best addresses the needs of your organization if needed.
You know your business best, and that is why the software you use should allow you to operate without any constraints.
As learning and deployment needs and technology continues to evolve, so will the requirements of this type of software system. We are constantly updating our product and continuing to study different kinds of companies so we can continue to make Competency Manager the best competency management system on the market.
