What is ITSS. This answer is here. ITSS is , in short a word, “the index for IT services industry”. It indentifies and systemized business capabilities. Also, ITSS provides framework for education and training of IT professionals in businesses and universities. ITSS is visualization of invisible human skill.
The object of ITSS is “effective capital investment for human resources development”. For companies, human resource development. And for individuals, carrier path development.
This chart is ITSS career framework. From left to right, job category is defined. Job category is not a person who work each job, it is job role. About several years ago, there are programmer and SE in IT industry. Now, we have 11 job category , consultant, project management, IT architect, IT specialist, and so on. In vertical line, we have defined 7 level. Level is career level and level 7 is high and level 1 is low. The white blank out part is not recognized as IT professional in ITSS. For example, please see Consultant job category. In consultant firm, trainee and assistant consultant exist, but Level 1, 2 and 3 are not recognized as ITSS consultant.
This page shows ITSS characteristic. There are 7 characteristics in ITSS. First one is “ Scope is IT vendors”. But, it is possible to use in user companies. Second one is 11 job categories. And 35 specialty fields. Third one is Level. 4 th one is “Level is certified by the KPI. KPI is Key performance indicator and it means experience and results. 5 th one is ITSS defined career and its expected skill. 6 th one is ITSS is reference model. No need full installation. Only use a part of ITSS. The last one is “ITSS use ITEE as level certification tool at level 1,2 and 3. We’ll explain the more detail after that. But if you hear ITSS at first time, please remember “JOB category” and “Level” as ITSS characteristic.
This page show the analogies of job category. For example, Project management is a conductor. Consultant is a doctor, IT architect is an architect. Education is a teacher. Do you get the image of job category in ITSS ?!
This page table is job category definition. Each 11 job category is defined. Blue word is outcome and red is responsibility. For example, see project management job category. PM has responsibility in the completion of the planned deliverable and required quality of service, cost and target date. Planned deliverable and service is outcome. And required quality, cost and target date is responsibility. But, I think everyone cannot understand job category and image. So, we’d like to have the analogy , specific example in other industries. Please see next page.
This chart shows the concept of level. In ITSS document, the level is defined in detail. In this chart, shows the concept of level. Level 1 is the lowest and level 1 person can work under the command of upper level person. Level 2 person can work a part of assignment without supervisor’s support. Level 3 person can work by him/herself. At the upper level 4, has responsibility for job. Level 4 person can lead member. Level 5 person is recognized as the authority in the company. Level 6 person is recognized as the authority in the market. Level 7 person leads the industry.
This systematic chart shows a training roadmap for Application specialist. It indicates what courses need to complete before going next level. Courses are classifies in five categories, Technology, Methodology, Project Management, Business/Industry, and Personal. People who are entering Project Management job career needs to finish courses shown in Level2. To show courses in organized way, it will make possible individuals and companies to make development planning effectively, and education venders to provide corresponding courses.
It is the sample for ITSS installation in a company. We can use ITSS as a reference model. It is no need to install ITSS fully. It is no problem to install ITSS for specific job category and part level. So, it is possible to blank out job category and specialty fields except use. Also, it is possible to adapt vendor test as certification tool. But, please attention for some points. First one is to use ITSS career framework without modification. If you cannot use some job career , please blank out like this sample. Second one is do not change level definition. Use level concept without modification. Third one is use ITEE as certification tool at level 1, 2 and 3.
This page show the approach to promote ITEE with ITSS. First one is “Career path”. What is …….. The answer is xxxxxxxxx. Second one is “Total Human resource development”. How to use……. That is how to assess…. The answer is xxxxxx It is just proposal and if you want to know the detail, please contact to me.
This page shows the sample of level assessment at level 2. Please see the balloon. You have not so good job result and experience. But, you passed the fundamental examination. I can consider you seems to carry out your assigned duties. So our company assesses you as the engineer for level2 of ITSS.
This page shows the sample of level assessment at level 3. Please see the balloon. You have not so good job result but you can carry out your duties as project member. You passed the AP examination. I can consider you seems to carry out your duties and you are assigned to application development. So our company assesses you as the engineer for level3 in APS Application specialist job category of ITSS.
