Summary While integrating into multicultural market of European labour force, with different systems of learning and education, different traditions in the sphere of human resource management, the success of human resources first of all depends on strategical competencies of individuals. Strategical individual competencies can be defined as the whole of knowledge, skills, abilities and ways of working an employee has to master, no matter what position he takes in organization. As Geolyse Pty.Ltd Corporate Development Manager A. Ward shows (foresight; Volume: 6 Issue: 2; 2004), the research conducted by famous Danish scientist A. Drejer ( The Learning Organization, Volume 7, Number 4, 2000) traditionally education system is orientated to the formation of professional competencies, named as “ tough “; whereas the attention to the “ soft” competences ( personal, social, emotional) is not significant. . Thus the latter competences are specially relevant to the rapidly changing business world and provides conditions for business development. Though different models of competencies exist (Plum, Schoonover, Lominger and etc.), but their practical appliance is orientated to the demand of particular companies, while directive development of strategical competencies must be started already in the primary steps of employee training, i.e. in the process of studies, by forming strategically significant competencies. This has determined the change of the competencies paradigm from human resources assessment to human resources Development conception, where is seeking not only to evaluate present situation, but to develop strategically perspective competencies. The development of strategical individual competencies involves the catalogue of these competencies and their development methodology, which is not limited to organization, sector or country, because fast processes of euro integration, complementary structure of business links, and dynamism of markets require strategic guidelines for the development of united strategical individual competencies.
