Here is the periodic sampling from my del.icio.us favorites list. This time I chose the tag "Competencies." This is what I found I have:
Do competency approaches really improve performance?: From Gram Consulting, a discussion of the relative merits of three different competency philosophies.
Link between Learning Objectives and Competencies: From Tier 1 Performance Solutions, and article on competencies and learning objectives as they relate to formal and informal learning.
Competency and competency frameworks: From the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, an article on development of both the framework and the competencies themselves.
Data is good, data is your friend, but beware of GIGO!: From The Pursuing Performance Blog, a discussion of data as they inform the development of competencies.
