Process Safety Competency
Professional training is undergoing a revolution in terms of both form and content. The arrival of new information technologies is partly responsible, as well the extensive and sometimes abusive reliance on PowerPoint presentations. We’re hearing about the progressive replacement of conventional face-to-face training sessions by e-learning, and the arrival of serious games representing a market of several billion euros. The real cause of this development lies much deeper than new technologies though, as it is associated with changes in how companies are managing their competencies. It is no longer simply a question of training employees and ticking training boxes, but of proving and managing competencies. Human resources departments, to which these responsibilities were generally assigned, are now progressively being renamed as Talent Management Centers, Competency Development Centers, etc.
