Competence System Management
Competence Set Analysis is a managerial decision analysis theory proposed and studied in 1980’s by the distinguished Professor Po-Lung Yu of Management Science, USA. In this paper, the recent research results in this field and its applications are reviewed, including behavior and decision mechanism, behavior hypotheses, common behavior tendencies, habitual domains analysis, competence set analysis, competence system management, etc.. Finally, further possible extensions and research problems are discussed.
Key words: Decision analysis; Competence set analysis; Habitual domain; Behavior pattern; Competence system management
