Transformation 2030 Competency Framework

The competency framework includes 20 transversal competencies.  This framework was developed to provide a common understanding of the skills, knowledge, abilities and/or behavioral characteristics required to achieve Transformation 2030, regardless of our specific function.  This framework is intended for all administrative and support staff.  The competencies are organized according to the Transformation 2030 strategic pillars. 

How this framework was developped

Literature review and exhaustive consultations have been done in order to present you this competency framework.  At the University of Ottawa, 61 people actively participated in working sessions to validate this framework.  Twenty-six services and six faculties were represented.
