Employee Self-Management…

Workforce Competence - Can it be measured? Yes it can! Competence is response-ability. It is an aptitude for anticipating a potential problem before the problem can occur, followed by a decisive action that eliminates or deftly avoids the problem.

Workforce competence, to be fully realized, requires precise definition and consistent measurement. People use skills each day to effect positive change, but habits tend to run on their own. Unchecked, an unconscious habit can easily lead to wrong action. Skill improvement is only possible when accurate, immediate & consistent feedback is provided.


Employee Self-Management is a systematic way to transmute skill into competence. It can be used to revolutionize any company’s ability to deliver unique, high quality products that meet or exceed customer requirements at the lowest possible production cost.
