Competence Assurance




    Oil and Gas


    HR / Competency

For a large international oil and gas production company having a common technical personnel competence assurance process and associated IT solution across four international business units was seen as essential to efficient operations. Stash facilitators were contracted to plan and deliver workshops to begin the process of making this happen.

Back to all Case Studies


A major oil company initiated a corporate project to implement a common Competence Assurance system across their four main producing businesses. The purpose was to ensure competent people, create a fully mobile workforce capable of doing their job in any of the four locations and develop a global companywide training portfolio. An early activity in the project was to identify, across the four businesses, common and region specific required competencies for the four main operational job roles – Instrument, Mechanical, Electrical and Process Technicians - plus Control Room Operator and Crane Driver / Banksman. At the same time common and region specific training requirements were to be identified and agreed.

Stash Solution

We were contracted to develop the process for and deliver a series of five workshops held in the four business units. These sessions were attended by Business Unit Representatives, corporate senior and project management, Business Unit Subject Matter Experts and IT who were, in parallel, developing the associated global Competence Assurance System. The work kicked off with two planning meetings in Q1 2013, the detail of the process was designed and agreed in early Q2 and the five workshops were delivered in May and June. All objectives were met and the project is now into roll out in one of the four business units before full implementation across the other three areas.
