Can!do is a leading consulting company in South Africa, with over 25 years of expertise in training, support, change management and business performance. Our core focus is to improve employee skills, facilitate digital transformation and increase the capabilities of South African companies.

As such, we offer three fundamental services; change management, capability development and performance optimisation. These allow our clients to meet their full potential by improving the skills, knowledge and abilities of their employees. Our business idea is quite simple; if people understand their roles in the company and have the necessary tools and skills to perform well, then they will contribute exponentially to the success of the company.

They can achieve this through capability development. For companies that want to grow and improve, a capability development strategy is necessary to guide employees and managers through a structured process. Can!do can help businesses with the formation and execution of these strategies.

What is capability development?

Essentially, capability development is the process of creating new competencies for employees or enhancing their existing skills. It enables employees to perform better and ensures that they are all aligned with business processes, systems and goals. A company is only as good as its employees, so they need to work seamlessly with one another and understand all the fundamental aspects of their roles.

Change is inevitable. Businesses evolve, technology improves and new systems are developed on a regular basis. This is why it’s vital that businesses are prepared for change and that their teams can adapt to new methods of work. Skills development, technology integration and ongoing training are core components of a good capability development strategy.

This process will help employees to learn new competencies and build upon their existing skills to ensure personal growth and development. In turn, teams become more effective, efficient and accomplished. 

How Can!do supports businesses

If you equip your employees with the right skills, abilities and tools, then they can run business processes and systems more effectively. This makes companies more competitive overall. Can!do develops tailored performance support processes to suit each company and their requirements. 

This is a practical approach to capability development that ensures employees always have the right information to improve their work abilities. Using a range of blended learning materials, facilitated interventions and support toolkits, we empower employees to carry out their tasks more effectively.

Why does a capability development strategy matter?

Technology is evolving rapidly and businesses need to stay abreast of new ways of working if they are to remain competitive. The success of any business relies on the collective capability of its employees. This includes daily tasks, problem-solving abilities and using technology to its full potential.

While it’s simple to say that skills development is a necessity for businesses, the actual process is more complicated to set up. Employees still need to perform their routine tasks and meet daily deadlines, so it can be challenging to slot training workshops and courses into the normal workday. This is where the strategy comes into play.

A well-defined process with clear goals and timelines will allow companies to function normally and include learning sessions in the process. It will allow employees to be agile and ensure that they can attend training sessions when required. The strategy will also minimise downtime while employees are taking part in sessions, but also reduce attrition and money spent on recruiting new staff members.

Can!do will develop and implement these strategies to suit each client’s needs. It must fit the requirements of the business and be impactful for the employees. A successful programme will foster a culture of continued learning and development. When executed well, capability development results in a more effective, competent and happy workforce.
