For a technical professional to prepare a development plan, they must first perform a skills analysis to identify what development is needed. The PetroSkills Competency Analysis Tool (CAT) is a software application that helps the organization and the individual do just that. Using the tool, individuals assess themselves against the PetroSkills Competency Maps to identify their current knowledge and skill base. Meanwhile, the organization can create competency profiles that indicate the requirements for various positions within the organization. The CAT can then be used to compare the individual’s skill profile with what the organization requires in that position, producing a summary of the skills that need to be developed.
With these needs identified, the CAT will assist the user with developing a learning plan to develop those skills, whether through courses, work experiences, reference material, technical papers or other means. Please contact us by email for more information about the Competency Analysis Tool and how it can work for you.
