The Harvard Business Review (HBR) recently posted an article entitled ‘We need a better way to visualise people’s skills’ by Michelle Weise.
The article posed the question ‘How can companies get a better idea of which skills employees and job candidates have?’
It stated that ‘simply collecting data is not enough – to be used, data has to be presented usefully’.
In her review, Karen Ferris – Director, Macanta Consulting Pty Ltd, discusses how SFIA and SkillsTx can address the issues raised in Michelle’s article.
Karen explains that for ICT, we already have a framework and supporting automation that provides us with a visual representation of what skills we currently have within our organisation and how they map to the skills we need now and into the future.
