Performance Management and Competency Development
The ADNI/HC has analyzed numerous career fields in the framework of ICD 610 across the IC to produce a competency library that supports IC agencies and elements in building standardized occupational series and in defining the components of jobs and work roles to include knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) common to functions performed across the IC enterprise. Through a combination of scientific observation, interviews with incumbents, and focus groups, the ADNI HC has provided, and continues to provide, competency definitions for all levels of occupations, assigning priority according to mission needs. Current endeavors include competency subdirectories for cybersecurity and responsible information sharing.
Adhering to systematic, purposeful, consistent Performance Management standards and practices engenders mutual trust among employees and their supervisory chain. The IC Performance Management function provides Knowledge Portals that deliver policy guidance, best practices, fact sheets, and training modules on all aspects of rating performance. Performance appraisals are the basis for vital personnel decisions that affect the workforce, including assignments, promotions, and awards. The ADNI/HC has provided a standardized performance management framework in Intelligence Community Directives (ICDs) 651 and 656; adherence to the principles and standards in the ICDs will result in fair and productive treatment of employees and will promote mission accomplishment.
