New Project with Shell Commercial Academy (SCA)

We are pleased to announce that we have started a new project to support Shell Commercial Academy with its candidate competency and capability assessment.

This follows on the success we have had with Shell’s Project Academy (SPA). We started working with them in 2013, putting in our software to help up to 5000 candidates to record their competencies and evidence as well as an in-depth record of their projects history. Around 600 candidates a year apply for one of 4 levels of Shell accreditation.

With the help of our colleagues at The Project academy Ltd (TPA) SPA candidates can use their level 2 accreditation to apply for Chartered membership of the Association of Project Management. OPL put in a major upgrade to SPA’s software in 2018, it’s this upgraded version that has caught the interest of the team at Shell’s Commercial Academy. The software for the Commercial Academy is now being rapidly developed to record commercial competencies and deal history for candidates who might wish to apply for Shell internal accreditation. The new system is due to launch in April, with up to 1000 candidates building their skills profiles and developing their capability.

This new system will be a huge advance on the Excel and paper-based process they previously used. Our latest software will allow Shell to double the throughput of candidate assessments, as was the case with SPA, thanks to the unique and bespoke simplicity of our software and administrative dashboard.

OPL leads research consortium and releases report on ‘Trends in Competency Management’

As an expert in Competency and Capability Management (CCM), OPL has developed the CCM Index which measures individual organisations against their sector peers and sector versus sector. 

When we decided to undertake research into the impact of competency management, we anticipated that we would find a strong correlation with better corporate performance; however the magnitude of what we found bowled us over.

We released our ‘Trends in Competency Management’. The title and writing style may be dry, but for executives of large organisations the content is exciting.
