Tobin, Daniel R. and Margaret S. Pettingell.



330 pages




This guide offers a framework for keeping managers deeply involved in competency development. The American Management Association's Management Development Competency Model is presented in its entirety, with hundreds of illustrative behaviors spread across nearly four dozen competencies as they apply to positions at four different employee and management levels. The competencies and skills identified represent a broad spectrum of key approaches available to both typical and unusual business settings. Using the model and the guidance provided in the book, readers can optimize every aspect of management development efforts, from screening and hiring to sustained talent management. Tobin and Pettingill are affiliated with the American Management Association.
