CAPS Profiler - Explained

How is it Structured?

The CAPS Profiler © is built around identifying and measuring three concepts of Success in business;


  1. Character traits / Attributes
  2. Ability 
  3. Potential

CAPS is grounded in robust  academic theory centred in social connectivism, that we have uniquely applied to a workplace setting. 


So, it's built to work around YOU - as its focus is to  identify, measure and inculcate the culture, expectations, values, ethos, goals and objectives of your business. 


The  unique CAPS Profiler process provides you with practical outcomes - a success profile for your business that is further translated seamlessly into tangible indicators of success across all of your business' functions, roles positions, growth and development initiatives. 


How does it Work?

  • Character: We get to know your business, its structure, culture, objectives, values, vision and challenges.  Most importantly, the expectations and vision of what success looks like, as it is held and known across your business. 


  • Abilities:  Our unique six domains of successful performance within CAPS are contextualised for their meaning within your business. 


  • Potential: Identifying consistent and measurable indicators of success across the CAPS domains and levels of performance; to benchmark your business  requirements and expectations 


  • Success Profile: Establishing and profiling the criteria for success across specific functions, roles and positions within the business. 

How is it Better?

The CAPS Profiler © is better than traditional Capability frameworks for a  number of reasons. CAPS stands out because it;


  •  Defines Character, Abilities and identifies potential for success 
  • Is modelled on current theory for the social, connective and digital age
  • Focuses on shared and transferrable domains of success, rather than point-in-time skill sets and requirements
  • Is grounded in a continuum of specific achievement, not on organisational levels
  • Is shaped by business ethics, expectations and values as the epi-centre
  • Holistically addresses the employee lifecycle. The outcome of CAPS are practical success profiles that guide all business incentives around workforce; attraction, retention, development, succession, learning and performance.



How is it Relevant?

The CAPS Profiler ©  is a model that is applied to your business, your function, your vision, values, goals and objectives - through the lenses of character, abilities, potential and the specifics that define success within your business.


The outcome is a purposeful and accute understanding of the expectations and requirements  of your business.  This is critical to establishing and building a positive and performance-based workplace culture.


The completed Success Profiles are then overlaid to business operation,  roles, position descriptions, recruitment and selection activities, learning interventions and development and succession plans.


It's always critical to know where your talent is, where your development initiatives need to focus and to ensure your business is flexible and geared towards performing optimally now and in the future.
