The COMP Factors of Behavior


In 2002, my second management book was published (in Dutch). Its translated title was “Professional learning – On growing together within healthy companies”. Almost two decades later, the core model that I presented in that book has not lost any of its applicability. This model is named COMP.

The COMP Factors of Behavior

COMP is the acronym of the four factors that underly (human) behavior: Competency, Opportunity, Motivation, and Perception. Each factor can be compared to an internal traffic light. Only when all four lights are green, the behavior at hand will occur.

The COMP model facilitates the root cause analysis of unsuccessful behavioral change. If a satisfactory answer cannot be given to any of the questions below, the behavior will not change.

These four COMP factors of behavior are interrelated. Any factor can trigger another. Therefore, if directly increasing one factor is rather hard, indirectly raising it through strengthening another factor might create the required leverage.

The COMP model is applicable for improving individual behavior up to altering the corporate behavior of an entire company. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance if you want to apply this in your situation or organization.

This article on the COMP model was written on Friday, September 6th, 2019, by Johan Oldenkamp.
