About the author

At the beginning of the new century, the author was drawn into the implementation of competence-based training at a hotel management school. As a Polymath navigating through various types of businesses and industries, the author's knowledge of personnel issues and employment was further expanded. The author's insight into competency management deepened further through various work assignments, such as a consultant for a Credit Management Association providing training to Shared Service Centers in aligning efficient strategies in their O2C cycle. More recently the author's knowledge on the topic intensified further as project manager for a United Nations development program designed to optimize resource allocation processes, linking and aligning competency frameworks from partners, private companies and UN organizations. Today, the author is developing competency frameworks based on business processes for learning and development teams at large multinationals.

Transitioning from a Function-Centric to a GIG-Centric, Competency-Directed Organization

Embracing a new concept of business guidance in a changing world

A paradigm shift. Migrate away from enterprises with rigid, often haphazard talent recognition structures to a competency-based assessment, talent inventory, training and development model supporting optimally efficient career-long learning environments.
Recognizing the current market tendency towards Gig-oriented talent acquisition and process execution, the model suggested moves towards an enterprise capability to fully and economically utilize its current inventory of resources.

As a work of non-fiction, the book incorporates three essential observations:
1) that the problem identified reside in every enterprise in every market regardless of size or maturity,
2) that the book presents a solution process that is operational in every circumstance, and
3) positions the author to introduce the process and solution to markets.
The book is the expression of my two years of research into how we presently attract, hire, retain, assess and grow organizational competence and its adequacy for the future. The model described in the book introduces a methodology to select and optimize resources of current and continuing value to enterprises, a most cost-effective solution highlighting the value and substance of a program to more effectively utilize competencies. Aligning enterprise needs with competencies will reduce the overall turnover rate for enterprises, direct compensation towards a pool of talent more essential, effective and productive without constantly expanding human capital resources without a confirmation of capacity.

Some of the more “twitch-agile” organizations have already demonstrated an ability to configure and reconfigure themselves to market needs in the new “Gig-driven” marketplace, while more fully utilizing internal and external resources in order to meet specific market challenges, becoming increasingly more important to 21st Century organizational success.

The time has come to abandon previous archaic forms of business practice driven by job descriptions and the hopeful selection of talent, in favor of the development of a competency-based resource pool ready to deliver and that stands effective at the moment, capable of restructuring and redirecting momentum on a moment’s notice in order to establish and maintain competitive advantage for the enterprise and value for stakeholders.

  • Deeper Competency-Based Learning Making Equitable Student-Centered Sustainable Shifts, Karin J. Hess; Rose L. Colby; Publisher Corwin; 1st Edition (June 11, 2020). The book is a comprehensive guide for districts and schools to use in plotting their journey to competency education. Simultaneously it concentrates only on educational competencies relevant for schools (K12) and has no association with competency matrixes used in professional business but the approach is similar as mine.
  • Competency-Based Human Resource Management, David D Dubois, William J Rothwell, Deborah Jo King, Linda K Kemp; NBP ; This book describes a new model of performance management focusing on the critical competencies that distinguish star performers, HR professionals can transform the way they recruit, train, develop, and compensate top-performing employees. Unfortunately, the competencies are position related and do not allow flexibility nor acknowledge the complete pool of competencies within an individual.
  • The Art and Science of Competency Models, Anntoinette D Lucia and Richard Lepsinger Pfeiffer; 1st Edition (March 5, 1999); This book is describing the creation and development of using competency models. It touches same topic of competencies created around a job and its description. It differentiates from mine as I intend to create a common ground for all businesses and not limit competency models to positions, titles nor jobs.

Dear Author,

You worked hard to write your manuscript; finally, it's ready to release. You know that expert assistance is needed, but perhaps you didn’t know that it’s no longer necessary to work with a publisher—especially publishers who charge fees to produce your book upfront and deduct more costs on the back end whenever a book is sold.

1106 Design is an author services company. We provide all the editorial and design services you’d expect from a publisher to turn your manuscript into a market-ready book—editing, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and more—at the traditional publisher level. Unlike a publisher, we’ll help you obtain print-on-demand printing and worldwide distribution in your name so that you earn, in most cases, several dollars more for every book sold instead of a measly “royalty.”

We’ll customize a package of services to suit your exact needs at affordable prices ranging from $4,000 to $10,000, depending on your manuscript's word count and complexity. And we’ll manage all the intricacies of book production, so you don’t have to. After this one-time investment, every penny of net revenue from book sales goes directly to you, never to us.

If this sounds like a better way to publish your book, I invite you to browse our services, design samples, no-surprises pricing, outstanding customer reviews, and educational articles at

1106 Design has been in business since 2001 and is rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau. We are a “Highly Recommended Expert” at and rated "Excellent" at Alli, The Alliance for Independent Authors, at
