Interesting Fact:

Everyone uses competencies everyday. They are simply the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to successfully perform at work, in school and in everyday life. A competency model is useful to organize the competencies needed to perform in a particular work setting such as a job, an occupation, or an industry.
The nine tiers of the model are divided into blocks representing the skills, knowledge and abilities essential for successful performance in the industry.
