A capability framework codifies what your organisation does well, which gives you the information needed to define how to do that.

CANBERRA, Australia - AussieJournal -- A capability is a mix of knowledge, skills, tools, processes and behaviours that combine to deliver an organisational objective. A capability framework defines capabilities that are fundamentally important for business success, as well as what is needed for effective performance at all levels in your company. In their latest article, the Acorn subject matter experts provide a detailed overview of capability frameworks, why they're so beneficial and how they tie to learning and development.

Skills can often be portable across organisations, but capabilities and capability frameworks are always contextually unique to your company. They aren't tied to one team or process either. Capabilities and capability frameworks are cross-functional.

Implementing a capability framework can benefit organisations in 12 different ways. That includes recruiting talent more effectively, identifying and closing skills gaps efficiently, providing the ability to act on strategic succession and workforce plans, and creating career pathways across teams and department. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

"A capability framework codifies what your organisation does well, which gives you the information needed to define how to do that," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director). "Capabilities can be used to create job descriptions, which enables shrewder performance management, informs talent decisions, impacts resourcing and ultimately traces back to profit. When you know what you can do well, it means you won't spend time or money in the wrong places."

Capability frameworks aren't meant to be secrets held by higher-ups. By providing visibility to employees, it can result in better day-to-day performance, encourage employee self-reflection and establish learning opportunities.

Well managed L&D can deliver the right people with the right skills at the moment of need, now and into the future. Effectively tracking development against a capability framework requires aligning learning with capabilities and business outcomes, evaluating learning differences and supporting skills application.
