What is competency management?

Competency management is the practice of identifying the key skills necessary for an employee to reach target performance in their specific role, and then developing and optimizing those skills to best align with the business strategy of an organization.

When looking at the meaning of competency management, it is first helpful to look at competencies themselves.

Competencies are also known as skills, values or behaviors, and represent the ‘how this should be accomplished’ rather than the ‘what is the objective’ of a goal.

Learning Analytics is not simply about collecting data from learners, but about finding meaning in the data in order to improve future learning.

Prescriptive analytics is a statistical method used to generate recommendations and make decisions based on the computational findings of algorithmic models.

For learning analytics, this could range from simple automated recommendations made to employees who are taking online training, to recommendations that indicate how instructors or course designers can improve the design of a course or program.

At present, prescriptive analytics is not widely used in the field of learning & development due to the complex requirements needed in the field of machine learning. It can be found in adaptive learning and also within some learning experience platforms (LXP).
