Define and Align

Define and align is about establishing what competencies are needed for a specific job.

We start by understanding how a given job is done now. We then guide management through the process of identifying the deliverables of the job - paring a job description down to the key accountabilities.

Two key questions in talent management:

  1. What does the job energize in a candidate or employee?
  2. Which candidate or employee is naturally energized by the job?
