Leadership and Organization
Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College (A-B Tech) developed a competency-based employee performance management and evaluation system and integrated it with the college’s professional development initiative. The limitation of A-B Tech’s original performance system, which had a binary scale and provided minimal evaluation of professional growth of employees, was identified. A cross-functional task force developed sets of competencies the college needed to realize its vision, mission, and values. The outcome included core competencies for all college employees plus role-based competencies. In all, the task force identified 9 Core, 6 Faculty, 7 Faculty Chair, 5 Supervisor, 5 Manager, and 5 Executive competencies. A Lickert scale ranging from “unacceptable” to “exceeds expectations” was defined as a rating system for each competency. Professional development offerings have been restructured to intentionally address one or more competencies.
