IT Skills Capability System


Published on

Griffith University develops an in-house system that can mange a skills capability framework.

Like you, the Department of Information Services (INS) works within changing capability requirements that are needed in support of our changing business environment under ever shrinking time frames. We refer staff to a number of skills frameworks: IT Professional skills (SFIA); Library professional skills (CILIP and/or Library skills framework currently in development with the IRU in Australia); Communication, Leadership and other core skills (such as AGPS Leadership & core skills or QLD PS CLF). With this system staff self-assess their capability, generate personal and organisational capability skills reports and reference capability against desired roles and career/development pathways. Management can utilise the information captured for data driven/big picture workforce planning initiatives.

  27. 27. Feedback The experience of completing the profile was enlightening, but a little more time consuming than I thought it would be. It made me aware of skills I possess that I hadn't yet consciously acknowledged. It was also interesting to identify skills I hadn't yet considered to be valuable for I.T. Professionals. I think the framework is valuable for I.T. Professionals personally, as it can enhance skill awareness and aid career development. It had taken me at least an hour to complete the profile. I had to read some of the skill descriptions a few times to ensure I had understood them correctly. I will most likely have to review my profile in case I misinterpreted some of the descriptions.
