On Assessment Centres and Balanced Score Cards :
My personal view is that competencies in the sense they are
understood and mapped in today's context have become outdated. Most
competency modelling techniques take into account past benchmarks
for behaviour assessment and does not take into account the future
perspective. IMHO, competencies were suitable for an age where work
was more predictable and individualistic in nature, and as greater
margin for error when work gets to be more knowledge-based, grou-
based and constanly in a flux. In such a case more broader
competencies might need to be considered...and I don't think ACs or
BEI are the correct way to go ahead and measure them :-)
