Your guide to becoming the business director you want to be
Director Competency Framework
Our Director Competency Framework offers a structured assessment of the wide range of strengths and areas for improvement. It helps organisations to balance core competencies within a board or senior leadership team, offering learning and development opportunities that lead to vital insight into strengths and skills gaps.
How it works
The Director Competency Framework is designed for company directors and senior leaders. Using three dimensions – knowledge, skills and mindset – the framework provides an accessible, measurable and achievable guide to the skills and behaviours required to become a better director.
Using the framework
You can apply the framework in different ways, depending on your organisation’s needs.
Identify strengths and define your director development needs using the self-assessment tool on the IoD Academy
Evaluate boards to balance competencies and monitor performance
Structure CPD, ongoing learning and career progression
Support selection and succession planning for new board members
Measure performance and carry out 360° assessments
Free to all members, the IoD Academy provides access to a range of bite-sized CPD content, our self-assessment tool and a CPD tracker.
