    Interesting. The article states you can earn a Ph.D. in Leadership and Change by competency assessment. Does such a program really exist?

    You can see a list of institutions at the C-BEN website that is linked in the article. Click on each school to see which programs are offered. I had this website bookmarked about a year and half ago until I had to wipe my my computer clean and forgot to save my Google bookmarks.

    I just went through the C-BEN list and I think they are referring to the Ph.D. from Antioch University. It looks like they utilize competencies instead of doctoral-level courses. Still requires the completion of a dissertation.

    The idea for the Ph.D. in Leadership and Change emerged in the mid-1990s from a university-wide academic innovation team. In designing the program, the faculty first defined learning outcomes and then determined how students would acquire and demonstrate the learning. As opposed to courses, students learn about organizational and systems change as well as research methods through guided readings, sessions at residencies, faculty mentoring and peer consultation. Students demonstrate their learning through required assignments over their pre-candidacy years. For example, during a three-to-six-month period during the second year, each student designs and leads a change project proposal with external and faculty approvals and guidance. Students write final reports including an assessment of goal accomplishment and personal learning. Upon approval of demonstrations of learning by two program faculty, the student is awarded credit. A dissertation is required.

    PhD in Leadership and Change | Antioch University
    Some of the competency-based programs aren't like the competency-based programs we have come to know. They are just outcomes-based programs. They are neither self-paced nor cheap. Antioch's PhD program has a cohort model, so I don't think it is self-paced. It is also a low-residency program.
