Agency Competency Management System (CMS). Overview and Training All Employees. A One NASA Product. What is the Competency Management System?. Collects current competency inventory in a common language across the Agency
Overview and Training
A One NASA Product
Strategic management of human capital is critical for strengthening the Agency. The workforce is an asset just like infrastructure or financial capital
An Agency wide system, shared by all Centers, was required for measuring and communicating workforce capability
A methodology was needed for measuring imbalances in the current or future workforce as compared to NASA strategies and Program/Project requirements
The CMS will support human capital decisions by assessing gaps between competency requirements and available competencies
The CMS will provide Senior Leadership with insight into the knowledge capabilities of the workforce distributed across the programs, projects, and Centers
The CMS can link together people with the same or similar competencies into communities of practice, which can then be connected to information that is relevant to that community
The CMS will help establish and communicate priorities in Agency wide programs for staffing and education
The CMS will provide employees, organizations, and functional communities with the capability to find employees, positions, or projects that utilize competencies
Centers will provide data to CMS annually, in preparation for budget planning
For example, CMS updating will be included in the process for identifying training and development priorities, identifying personnel who may be a good fit for projects or assist in finding the right people to consider for succession planning
CMS can be used to identify competency gaps and target training and development to close those gaps or to prepare them to take on new roles.
It is important to note that competencies are one approach to describe one aspect of an individual’s capabilities – strictly as it relates to the Agency’s mission. Competencies do not reflect, nor are intended to capture, all of what a person knows or is capable of doing.
