Capability Model - Create - Capability Targets

When creating or editing a capability model, administrators can enable and define target proficiency levels for capabilities in a model. The target proficiency level represents the proficiency level that is required for the capability model. Administrators may define target proficiency levels for all users in the organization or for specific organizational units (OUs).

The proficiency levels that are available when setting proficiency targets are configured in Capability Preferences > Proficiency Levels. See Capabilities Preferences - Proficiency Levels.

To create a Capability Model, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Capabilities > Capability Models Library. Then, select the Create button.

To edit a Capability Model, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Capabilities > Capability Models Library. Then, select the Edit link for the appropriate Capability Model.

Enable Capability Targets

When creating a capability model, capability targets are disabled by default. To enable capability targets for the competency model, enable the Define Capability Targets toggle.

Set the same targets for all selected OUs

To set the same capability targets for all users who are included in the capability model, select Set the same targets for all selected OUs.

When this option is selected, a single set of sliders are available with one slider for each capability. Select the target proficiency level for each capability. The selected targets are applied to all users in the capability model.

Set different targets for selected OUs

To set different capability targets for each organizational unit associated with the capability model, select Set different targets for selected OUs.

When this option is selected, each organizational unit associated with the capability model will have a distinct set of sliders to set specific targets for each organizational unit. This method could be used to set a model for an entire department or team with different proficiency levels for different roles within that department or team. Similarly, this method could be used to set a model for a job type but require different proficiency levels for Junior or Senior titles.

Suggested Target

When the lowest proficiency level is set as the target or when a target is not set for a proficiency, this indicates the skill is suggested for the role, but there is no target proficiency for the skill within the capability model.

The "Suggested" rating label is not customizable.

Highest Target

The highest rating displays the customized level label for the highest proficiency level configured in Capability Preferences > Proficiency Levels. See Capabilities Preferences - Proficiency Levels.

Save Draft

Select the Save Draft button to save the current model as a draft. The model does not impact any users' suggested skills until it is published.

Publish

Select the Publish button to save and publish the Capability Model. When a Capability Model is published, any user who is within the model's defined audience is provided the model's critical skills as suggested skills in the Skills You Might Have section of their Skills Profile. Users are not suggested any critical skills that they have already declared.
