Global Skill Analysis Model25 Apr, 2011
The Skill Analysis Model caters to the growing need of organizations to optimize and manage skills to get a competitive edge. Technology organizations today while making headway in globalizing their functions are often disadvantaged with their talent strategy, which lacks a comprehensive skill tracking and estimating system. The Skill Analysis Model arises from this gap among organizations in tracking the required hard skills and in assessing their employees' hard skills, domain skills and competencies. It addresses the need for a well-chalked out futuristic strategy with a continuous human capital capability management and skill monitoring system to enable global centers achieve their goals.
Designed to address the need among organizations to define their product and global centre roadmaps as well as to understand the skills required in future for various products, the Skill Analysis Model covers one of the key aspects of global talent planning. The model features as a reliable system that regularly estimates hard skills, domain skills and competencies of employees across centers of an organization giving a fair view of the skills distribution both in terms of employee and from the product requirement perspective. It is driven by a robust methodology whereby data is collected from surveys designed specifically for various levels of organizational hierarch. It is equipped with data from a thorough analysis of hard skills, domain skills and competencies. Apart from drawing an estimate of skill distribution by product family, job level, reporting structure and function at different global centers, it also highlights gaps at different global centers and variations in expertise level within the same skill set thereby facilitating a foresighted talent strategy and training program.
With the complexity of a workforce distributed across various experience and functional levels across global centers, the skill analysis model enables a quick talent ramp up at the headquarter location and the global centers. It helps save on people cost, improve efficiency and implement required trainings. The peer group analysis gives a very precise and detailed picture of how an employee rates in comparison to his peer. The profile builder comprising the ideal skill requirement, competency level and team composition data gives a ready estimate of the product-wise skills requirement, plays a crucial role in global centre and talent roadmap and assists in talent planning and team composition. We are in the midst of a global transformation with changes affecting various industries as well as the global labor force. At such a time an organization can derive multi-pronged benefits from deploying the Skill Analysis Model.
