Describes competence modelling at Tioxide, UK. Dissatisfied with using models of specific management competences solely for assessment and selection Tioxide transformed it into a tool to develop greater flexibility among managers. Beginning with four days of modelling skills uptake participants went on to model as many management competences as they could in the next three weeks. The outcome was a group of individuals who could elicit, model and develop their own new skills as well as being able to teach these new skills.
