Capability Frameworks

LINK  is leading the way in the important field of Capability Frameworks. We have designed a unique approach to mapping the skills and knowledge — required, actual and missing — within an organisation’s human capital; in addition, we have strategies that enable an organisation to leverage the capabilities recorded in a framework to HR processes such as recruitment, performance management, workforce planning, talent management and career development.


"I have had the pleasure of working with David on a number of projects over the last few years and find his ability to understand clients needs and focus on outcomes second to none. David's attention to detail, yet collaborative, consultative approach ensures that he put's together strong teams to provide significant results for his clients." James
