Measuring the currency of knowledge of your people

About OCG

A product of Watertrain, OCG is a cost-effective, independent and flexible system developed to measure the currency of knowledge of your people. We work with our clients to identify the key roles within their sector and create bespoke assessments, which provide a clear picture of the current knowledge and competence of individuals in their actual roles.

OCG Approach

The OCG approach involves two main stages. First is the Development Phase where the client’s needs are scoped out following a seven-step plan and the second the Implementation Phase, another seven-step initiative. The OCG approach gives you a clear picture of the competence of individual employees to fulfil their specific roles.
