Results Achieved to Date

  • ExpectedResults: The team recently completed draft job profiles to move all Spec Libraries Job Family jobs into the Competencies program.
  • I'm responding to your request to Lisa German for an update on the Libraries' Competencies Design Team. The team completed its work in January 2010 when job profiles and level descriptions were finished for all Libraries' staff positions. Over the next eight months, 203 Libraries' positions were mapped over from the Spec system to the new Competency Profiles. The conversion was completed in November 2010 with no disruption.
