  28. 28. Why a competency model? The Energy Industry Competency Building Block model is designed to provide a consistent definition of the competencies required to work in the industry. The model builds from basic fundamentals to more industry and career specific competencies. The Competency Model consists of stacked tiers increasing in specificity and specialization as the pyramid ascends. Each tier is divided into blocks representing content or the skills, knowledge, abilities and other factors that are essential to successful performance in the industry. Not all competencies are required for all of the jobs in the energy business; for example, all competencies on the lower tiers are not necessarily needed to achieve the competencies needed on upper level tiers.© 2010 Green recruitment SA, Inc.
