Skills & Training Matrices
A skills/training matrix is a common approach used to record and report against training and development activity.
These are useful tools to focus on records of training, attendance, knowledge & understanding, and most importantly, competence. A skills matrix will provide a high-level view of this data across selected parts of the organisation, and allow managers to quickly identify both gaps and strengths.
Your chosen solution for creating skills and training matrices must also enable you to have visibility of the supporting data. Aspects such as training dates, certification, and expiry/re-training dates must also be included, in order to allow effective management of training and competence. Many Training and Development Managers also include behavioural skills in their competency frameworks, further enriching their skills matrices.
Once in-place, your competency framework and skills matrices will drive your organisation towards intuitive and fast competency management, and competency-based recruitment.
