Governance & Sustainability

Our Governance & Sustainability Modeling establishes the policies, standards, and general guidelines for the continuous monitoring of new Competency Management Programs against organizational standards to ensure proper implementation and ongoing effectiveness or sustainability.

Based on best practice approaches and generally recommended methodologies, the Governance and Sustainability Model is drafted at the start of each full-scale program implementation, and gradually updated and adjusted towards site-specific requirements throughout the initial deployment of a program, and ongoing throughout the continuous improvement lifecycle.

It serves as the “Operations Manual” for the Competency Management Program, and focuses on the governance of four critical pillars of Program, Competency, Software, and Deployment.

Other key elements of our Governance and Sustainability Modelling may include:

  • Competency Terminology
  • Skills Development Process
  • Program Roles & Responsibilities
  • Program RACI & Organization Structure
  • Quality Assurance Process

  • Assessment Standardization Processes
