First of all, this study provided a competency model for quality specialists to apply several methods such as thorough exploration of research literature on qualitative and in-depth interviews, and panel discussions among focused groups to build a competency model for quality specialists. Secondly, after formally conducting tests with scales, we used an exploratory factor analysis to refine the scale and to construct a validity of the scale. The results showed that in the findings, there were three major competency groups among quality specialists of SMEs, which were classified as: “professional knowledge and skills about quality,” “individual professionalism and traits,” and “organizational and interpersonal talents.” finally, a confirmatory factor analysis was applied to test the goodness of the fitness of the proposed competency model. The major practical application of this study is that one can use the proposed scale and model developed by the present study to recruit quality specialists of SMEs, serve as educational training, and develop career development plans for employees.
