    But on a serious note, my oldest son is just learning to drive and providing him with a realistic models of driving situations with information about proper driving behavior is a good thing and something I want to encourage so he gains knowledge of how to be a good driver as quickly as possible. There are many creative ways to leverage virtual world platforms from conducting job interviews over a distance to conducting training on critical incidents to machinima to teaching new military recruits. And here is another useful application. Teaching people how to drive.

    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.
