OPM.gov provides insights into the five executive core qualifications (ECQs), which are the competencies “needed to build a federal corporate culture that drives results, serves customers, and builds successful teams and coalitions within and outside the organization.” The ECQs, while not specifically called out on the site, align with the principles and best practices of organizational change management (OCM). This lunch-n-learn will provide an open forum to walk through the ECQs and discuss how the competencies map to OCM. We will also discuss examples of where we have seen federal agencies and leaders demonstrate these competencies as well as identify opportunities of how to promote and encourage OCM tactics to strengthen the use of the competencies in the future.
