Abstract :

The main purpose of this study was to identify and prioritise key managerial competencies in the General Directorate of Cooperatives, Labour and Social Welfare. In order to validate the model, the first questionnaire was designed and distributed among the statistical population.

The second questionnaire was designed by analytic network process (ANP) to prioritise dimensions and components of competency and given to experts.
