Competency Frameworks for Skill Requirements

“How do I know what skills I am going to need in the future?”

Always a difficult question to answer without a crystal ball but any organisation with a business plan will have goals for the future, both short and long-term, that will naturally influence/guide the business’s skill requirements.

Linking your business plan to a well maintained competency framework can help to identify not only existing skills but future skill requirements, because it will be linked to the short-term and long-term organisational needs.

This allows you to plan for the future through auditing [performing a skills audit] and development [development] of existing staff, recruitment [recruitment] of new staff to meet the future requirements.
