AssistKD’s Performance Development Model™ is applied in the delivery of this service.

AssistKD consultants apply their service design knowledge and expertise to develop relevant role definitions for business change professionals. The T-shaped professional concept is used to identify the broad collaboration and business skills, and the specialist role skills.
