Competency modeling plays a pivotal role in both leadership development and talent management activities such as succession planning. Increasingly used to unify diverse human resources programs, a competency model identifies the skills, knowledge, behaviours and attributes that an organization requires in order be successful. In doing so, it provides a solid foundation on which to build leadership development and talent management programs.
