AMA Management Competency Model

The difficulty of many training manager is that the many organizations they work for have no management competency models. The HR division is usually focus on HR processes such as recruitment, C&B, security and ER/IR. On top pf that, it takes two to three years to develop competency model for the whole organization (including function competencies) !

I have been researching generic competency model, from Advance Manufacturing Competencies to UK's Managent Standard Center, Pfizer's Model (Malaysia and Singapore) and some other competency models which look more like skills matrix rather than competency model.

I found the AMA Management Competency Model is the most useful one for any organizations to adopt. I am going to adapt it for my present employer and share it to my HRD community. The model can truly save time and resource. I will adapt it for selection of employee, development of employee, accessing periodically and part of the promotion criteria.



From the experts at the American Management Association, an indispensable look at how great organizations can make the most of their managers.

Based on the set of managerial competencies specially developed by the American Management Association for a new core management curriculum, The AMA Guide to Management Development provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of how to continually develop managers throughout their entire organization. The book considers every factor important in management development, and features in-depth information on topics including:

• The five major categories of competencies, including business knowledge and the ability to lead and manage change and innovation

• The specific skills needed, including communication skills and people management skills

• Alternative methods organizations may use to develop managers, including different types of training and evaluation of learning effectiveness

Management development is a crucial task for every enterprise. This book gives readers the guidance they need to make sure that both current and future managers have the abilities their organizations need to prosper.
