I have to disagree with Shefali. First, discuss and describe are two different words. I see no need to change the meaning of the sentence. The question here is whether competency should be singular or plural. If there is more than one type, there is more than one competency in the organization. Here is a similar sentence: List the colors of the apples on the table. If written differently, they both could be used in the singular form. List the apple colors. Discuss the competency types.
