Individual competence, organisational capability

The capability of an organisation is the sum total of individual competence. For individuals, competence is the foundation for mastery, meaning, autonomy – and engagement.

“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world”, said Archimedes. We believe competence development is the lever of organisations in the knowledge economy.

Meanwhile, two separate trends are creating a perfect storm within he science and practice of talent management.


Organisations are finding that performance management does not work – because performance can only be developed. And performance development is, simply, competence development.

At the same time organisations are discovering 70:20:10 – that learning happens all the time, not just in the classroom, and is something that can be managed – through competence profiles, plans and planning.

Dossier Solutions is the people platform for organisations who understand and appreciate these realities. Together with our customers, we are able to continually increase individual competence, and through individual competence – organisational capability.

Start with competence

When you start with competence, talent management makes more sense.

It’s means shifting the premise of your people management from being about engagement (the will to perform) to being about competence (the ability to perform).

Employee engagement is both premise of and the result of competence based people management. However, in the knowledge economy we can – and must – assume that employees want to perform.

Given this assumtion the only variable left to manage is the ability to perform – competence.

Taking competence as a starting point, strategy, leadership and management all make more sense. It is all about building capability through competence.
