Mastering your current job does not necessarily result in a promotion. To advance your career you must develop the competencies needed for both your current position and the one you are striving towards.
Workforce trends are dismantling the classic career ladder model in favor of “portfolio of skills.” The new realities of career development make a competency-based approach more important than ever.
An effective competency model helps educational organizations find the right team members, sets standards for performance, and drives business results. It provides a framework detailing the necessary skills and abilities required to succeed now and as the educational procurement landscape evolves.
Recently, NAEP embarked on a project to review and update the Competency Model. The process, conducted by InspirEd, included one-on-one interviews and surveys distributed to a sample group of NAEP members.
The result of this endeavor is the following Competency Model, designed specifically for educational procurement professionals. It includes competencies which address needs for professionals today and into the future.
