ACHE HEALTHCARE EXECUTIVE 2021 COMPETENCIES ASSESSMENT TOOL

ACHE Healthcare Executive Competencies Assessment Tool Copyright © 2021 by the American College of Healthcare Executives1

The American College of Healthcare Executives’ Healthcare Executive Competencies Assessment Tool is offered as an instrument for healthcare leaders to use in assessing their expertise in critical areas of healthcare management.

How to Use This Tool This tool can be used in several different ways to identify areas of strength and areas that may need professional skill development as well as formulating a development plan. Some examples of how this tool can be used are listed below.

• Self or organizational assessment. The tool is designed to help you identify strengths and areas for development in relation to ACHE’s competencies. It may provide valuable information in your performance planning and review.

• Team or group development. The tool may help link individual performance to the goals of the organization. Integrating knowledge and skills needed for effective leadership will allow team members to achieve corporate goals, objectives and values.

• Employee selection or job descriptions. The tool may provide the ability to look beyond the individual and understand the composition of the entire workforce by exploring the strengths, weaknesses and gaps across the organization. You can make more informed decisions regarding training initiatives, allocate resources more effectively and align development opportunities with organizational goals.

• Academic or professional development programs. The tool may help uncover knowledge and skills you may wish to update or improve. Once you have completed the ratings, you will get results that point to the competencies you should focus on when choosing professional development opportunities.

This tool is self-scored with no right or wrong answers. Use the results to make a development plan, and complete the ACHE Competencies Assessment Tool at desired intervals to measure growth over time.

To assess expertise in the five domains of this tool, consider where you, the person, or the team you are assessing would fall on the scale of skill acquisition.

• Novice (1)–An individual’s primary focus is understanding and gaining information in order to comprehend the skills needed. You have the level of experience gained in a classroom setting or on-the- job training. You are expected to need help when performing this skill.

• Competent (3)–People with considerable experience develop competence in solving problems within the learned guidelines and rules. You are able to successfully complete the competency as requested. Help from experts may be required from time to time, but you can usually perform the skill independently.

• Expert (5)–Experts work intuitively analyzing, recognizing patterns, critiquing and solving problems with ideas and expertise. You are known as the expert in this area. You can provide guidance, troubleshoot and answer questions related to this competency.

For your convenience, a complete list of ACHE resources, including readings, programs, assessments, and self-study courses are included in the back of the directory and referenced by number in each section of the assessment.

About This Tool The competencies are derived from job analysis surveys of healthcare leaders across various management and administration disciplines. They are aligned with the challenges and opportunities experienced by leaders today. The tool is reviewed and updated annually.
