Component Type: Session
Level: Intermediate

Using the profession of “Medical Writing”, this session explores the productivity dissonance created when skills are not properly described, understood or communicated. Although Medical Writing is the use case presented here, this session addresses issues that are common throughout the organization. Also discussed is the idea of a tailored “Competency Model” to assist the organization with clarifying roles, skills and where they should ideally be applied. The net result is not only greater productivity for the organization, but greater job satisfaction overall.

Learning Objectives

Recognize how clear understanding of roles facilitates collaboration within a team, department or organization; Describe how competencies, knowledge, skills and abilities translate to success in projects and careers.
