For competency-based solutions


Who Are We


Compet Consulting is a Colorado-based consulting business which specializes in competency-based approaches to individual and organizational effectiveness.  We help organizations articulate their vision, values, and goals.  We also help them analyze jobs, determine the critical competencies individuals need to be effective in their organizations, and develop elements of an integrated human resource system (hiring/selection, training, performance documentation, and career development).
