This article aims to examine Johari window theory as the grand theory of human resource competence. The concept of human resource competency is known to have an important role in improving employee performance. Employee performance contributes greatly to achieving a company's vision, mission, goals, and objectives. The competence of human resources is one of the important factors to be managed and optimized by minimizing the gap between the expected competencies and the competencies possessed by employees. The increasing number of researchers who research human resource competencies makes choosing the right grand theory an important thing to do as the main source theory, which will then be developed by middle-range theory. The Johari Window Theory states that every self-development possessed by humans is observed from four sides in the form of windows: knowledge, skills, expertise and attitudes. The right grand theory for a research variable will simplify and increase the accuracy of the main theoretical basis used to determine the research concept to be carried out.
