The PointLeader Competency Profiler (PCP) uses two sets of questions to identify the critical requirements for any job with a 30- minute online questionnaire. The first set asks subject matter experts (SMEs) to rate the importance and frequency of performing each competency to success in target job. The second set of questions asks the SMEs to rate the importance of 52 behavioral statements to job success. Each behavior is statistically linked to the PCP competencies.
The third source of information comes from the O*NET importance ratings for each competency. These ratings are combined in our scoring algorithm with local SME competency ratings and behavioral ratings from the PCP. This provides triangulation of information from a combination of local and national workforce input for each job profile. Based on final ratings, the critical competencies are identified and compared to archival norms for the target job from the PointLeader archives, as a verification step.
