  • Define focus. Clarify if the skills matrix pertains to an entire department or specific roles within it.
  • Identify key skills. List essential competencies for each role or area of operation.
  • Establish proficiency levels. Define skill proficiency levels, aligning them with job requirements.
  • Set evaluation criteria. Create a clear evaluation process, considering on-the-job performance and training qualifications.
  • Regularly review and update. Ensure regular reviews to adapt to evolving roles, technologies, and organizational goals.
