Outcomes of Competency Management: Matter of Faith or Backed by Academic Evidence? A State of the Art of the Rhetoric Compared to Available Evidence

Mieke Audenaert UGent, Alex Vanderstraeten UGent and Dirk Buyens UGent (2009)
abstract
The concept of competency management covers an implicit claim that human resource management starting from competency models, leads in some way to superior performance. This article examines the state of the art regarding its outcomes in existing academic articles. Therefore a systematic review is conducted. The main strands are typified by a rhetoric-research gap in which a mass of claimed outcomes stands in a sharp contrast with a lack of academic research. This leads us to think that more has been ‘said’ about the outcomes of competency management than actually been empirically ‘proven’. The analysis is set out to enlighten the linkages between competency management and outcomes, and serves as a pool for potential focal areas of future research.
