Competency Gap Analysis

Competency gap analysis is a process that ensures that your workforce’s current competencies are broken down at a team, job-role and individual-level, and then matched to the company’s future goals. A competency gap analysis helps organizations enlist the desired future and current competencies with an aim to find critical gaps that may affect the employee’s performance and productivity, and the overall success of the organization.

A competency gap analysis is the process in which organizations list down its future goals, required employee competencies, current employee competencies, and the best ways to minimize the gaps. Every competency, pertaining to people, processes, structures, is put under the lens to holistically diagnose the gaps. Competency gap analysis is an important strategy to keep the skills of your employees updated and relevant.
