Clarifying the Concept of " Competency" in Human Resource Management: A conceptual Analysis Approach
Ambiguity surrounding the concept of competency, as one of the basic concepts in human resource management, is a challenging issue that have been raised by many scholars. The aim of this article is to address this issue, reduce ambiguity of this concept and take steps towards clarifying this concept. For this purpose, conceptual analysis approach, proposed by Suddaby (2010), was used. According to this approach, by conducting four operations on a concept, it can be made clear: 1. providing a proper definition of the concept, 2. analyzing the space, time, and value scope of the concept, 3. demarcating the proposed concept by examining its relation with related concepts, and finally 4. analyzing and displaying logical consistency of the proposed concept and applying it in relevant theoretical frameworks. Based on this conceptual analysis approach, the paper first reviews past efforts made to clarify the concept of competency and then analyzes this concept according to each of the four pillars of conceptual clarification. Finally, a conceptual model is presented based on conducted analysis.
