What does good HR look like?
HR is a young profession. The profession loves processes and frameworks. Of course there are also many frameworks that outline what good HR should look like. For this overview we collected around 30 of them.
30+ different HR models
Many models are related to the work of Ulrich and Brockbank. “Credible Activist” is certainly one of the competency areas out of their kitchen.
Most of the models reflect the “rounded HR professional” as the ideal. This is one of them.
The rounded HR generalist masters at least these 12 skills. Sense of humour is not one of them, or isn’t that a skill?
“Overall you were one of the best candidates, but we have some doubts about your ambidexterity”. The meaning of the dotted lines is not so clear to me.
A model focused on talent management of the ATD.
Some clear thinking has gone into this CIPD model. First time in this collection we see “curious”.
Concordia St. Paul
Nine competency areas, interestingly arranged anti-clockwise.

The 8-Box Model (Paul Boselie)
Generator Talent Group
The Harvard Framework for HRM

Try to formulate the relationship between light blue, blue and dark blue.
A special model for digital HR.
M&A Strategie Gmbh
Always start with the Corpotrate vision.
OMD HR Model
The “Paradox Navigator” is another great invention of Ulrich c.s. Sounds better than “Dilemma Reconciliator”.
“Karen, can you explain the Schippmann model to me?”.
South African HR competency model
The colours and the shape are great!
The 10 C Model
Training Manager Competency Model
Another iteration, probably not designed by Ulrich.
University of Florida
A prize for the University of Florida: not a circle but a tree!
University System of Georgia
Another circle, in purple and blue.
