Lying about Qualifications

“Competence is to ensure that your actions put people’s hearts at ease
when things are in your hands.”

– Israelmore Ayivor –

A qualification is defined as the quality, ability, or accomplishment that makes a person suitable for a particular position or task.

The falsification or claiming of non-existing qualification scandals seem to communicate that whether you have a qualification or not, there is no difference in performance. Gaining the expertise, knowledge and skills on the job is the benefit of experience.

There are knowledge systems that are undermined which people think they can do without qualifications and training such as strategy, marketing, HR, Management and so forth. When you don’t know what you don’t know, I am sure you can.

So if performance is really not discernable whether you have a qualification or not, I am wondering what the real issue is. Is it that there is no discernable difference in quality of performance so qualifications are obsolete? Or is the missing link with the people observing/ assessing the performance who lack the discernment to accurately judge the quality of performance because what are they actually comparing it against if they themselves are not experts in that field? When do you truly appreciate that there is a shortcoming in performance? When lives are lost? When the profitable and bloated financial statements are proven to have been a myth of manipulating the timing? With qualications, there is still a huge risk that as individuals you take everyday in making decisions. How much more when you don’t know what you don’t know?

We are really in trouble. icon_frownface
