Competency Management is a systematic approach that captures skills and behaviors of employees for each job function. Having an inventory of “skill definitions” can improve the company’s ability to recruit and manage succession planning.
With a competency model in place, employees can acquire and maintain the skills and knowledge needed to perform a job to defined standards. The development of meaningful skill evaluation and competency management is becoming increasingly scrutinized by US FDA and other global agencies during inspections.
Even standards such as ISO 13485: 2016 are now requiring that medical device companies have a formal competency management plan in place.
