| WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2014
They provide guidance to managers and direct reports alike on the behaviors that are expected. Competencies are the language of talent management. They also are a way to assess those behaviors, whether for the purpose of hiring, development, or performance appraisal. Yet, for all that can potentially be right about competencies, so much can also potentially be wrong. In many organizations we talk to, competencies are too numerous, ill-defined, or too complex. The result is the competencies are infrequently used and ultimately cast aside.

This is becoming obvious in the business world and frameworks such as Social CRM (customer relationship management) are one attempt to address it.
