Getting started with skills matrices in Excel

To get an idea of ​​how a skills matrix works, take a quick look at this example. We don’t recommend using Excel long‑term, but a spreadsheet does help you on your way to getting a better overview of your employees’ skills.

When spreadsheets just aren’t enough!

There generally comes a time when you need more from your skills matrices than a spreadsheet can provide, such as:

  • version management – simultaneous access to the same matrix without creating version conflicts
  • shared use – access to skills matrices across teams, departments, or sites
  • peace of mind – error-free skills matrices that auditors will love

Skills matrix software may just provide the solution you’re looking for to take your skills management processes to the next level.

Why not take a look at our ‘How it works’ page for other practical examples explaining how to avoid the pitfalls of spreadsheets and skills matrices?
