This paper describes our efforts in auditing coverage of critical all-inclusive behavioral competencies in Information Systems (IS) and Computer Science (CS) curricula. The paper introduces a framework to teach critical behavioral competencies such as communications, conflict management and leadership in teams in IS and CS programs. Such programs provide limited opportunity to students to develop these skills of great importance in the workforce. Our research reveals that usually such abilities are spread out across several courses and it is difficult to get a broad picture of which competencies are being delivered and where. We have researched a spreadsheet model that makes it possible to assess if topics such as leadership, teams or communications are underdeveloped. If any specific competency is missing, the model recommends a list of topics and exercises for integration into a course.
