Technological changes, global competition and a move towards strategic human resource management have focused on the importance of dynamic nature of competencies required by the workforce (Paulsson, Ivergard, & Hunt, 2005; Sparrow & Bognanno, 1993). Hollenbeck, McCall and Silzer (2006) also indicated that competencies and competency models have been helpful in determining and understanding managerial effectiveness. Therefore, researchers have examined what competencies an organization and its workforce need to compete in a changing business environment to manage and overcome the pressure of change.
