These two studies can serve as roadmaps for other companies that are just beginning to explore competency management as well as those that are looking to expand their full talent management capabilities
Atkins, VA (PRWEB) May 6, 2008
TEDS®, Inc., originator of the fully integrated enterprise-wide talent management solution, announced today that two landmark case studies on competency management were recently updated and are now available for download at teds.com. These case studies were originally published as a part of a larger study conducted by the research and advisory firm, Bersin & Associates. Competencies: Gateway to Integrated Talent Management explored the foundational and critical role that competencies play in optimal talent management. This study included supportive case studies on competency management implementations by TEDS’ customers Steelcase and Eastman Chemical.
Today, at Talent Management Magazine’s Strategies 2008 conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, these case studies will serve as key examples of outstanding competency implementations in a presentation by Bersin Principal Analyst, Kim Lamoureux. Ms. Lamoureux directs Bersin’s research in leadership development, succession planning and competency management. She authored the original study and the supporting case studies as well.
In the case studies, Steelcase and Eastman Chemical share their strategies for developing, prioritizing and managing leadership and functional competencies that are critical to honing a competitive edge. The updated studies now include additional data and graphics, including screen shots from TEDS’ integrated talent management suite.
The Steelcase study, A Talent Management Foundation, shows how Steelcase used competencies as a foundation for managing talent and employed a creative breakthrough strategy for simplifying the competency development and management process. Steelcase has successfully tackled the challenge of job-specific competencies. The case study shows how Steelcase accomplished this with the help of TEDS’ single-vendor, integrated talent management solution.
The Eastman Chemical study, Linking Competencies to an LMS, demonstrates how Eastman tracks training requirements to maintain compliance with rigid standards in the highly regulated chemical industry. The study examines the company’s best practices in successfully implementing an enterprise competency management program that assesses and tracks employees’ performance against functional and technical requirements. Eastman has been a TEDS customer since 1994 and the TEDS LMS became Eastman’s enterprise solution in 1997.
"These two studies can serve as roadmaps for other companies that are just beginning to explore competency management as well as those that are looking to expand their full talent management capabilities," said Joe Ellis, TEDS’ founder and CEO. "Competency management can easily become a solid foundation for all other aspects of talent management, from learning to succession planning."
