2. What are the functions and tasks that must be accomplished in your organization’s daily work if it is going to meet those objectives?
3. What competencies are needed among your staff to accomplish these functions and tasks?
4. What competencies does each of the individuals within your span of control possess?
5. What are the gaps between competencies needed, and the competencies now present in your organization?
6. In what ways can you bring the required competencies that already exist to bear on the functions and tasks that must be accomplished?
7. What competencies should each individual develop from the organization’s point of view? From the employee’s point of view?
