    Abstract: This session focuses on methodological considerations when building multi-level competency models.  Based on my experience building command competency models for three levels in the U.S. Army, I will offer insights and discuss challenges faced in the process.  The competency model-building process I employed relied heavily on military SMEs through qualitative interviews and quantitative surveys.  Major challenges involved navigating changing industry-specific jargon, eliciting needed information from SMEs, synthesizing the information to determine how competencies manifest at various levels of leadership.
