The Want of a Skill Appraisal System in Global Technology Organizations
Technology organizations today while making headway in globalizing their functions are often put at a disadvantage with their talent strategy. There is neither a comprehensive skill estimating system (to track the required hard skills) nor a skill tracking system (to identify the skill and competency level of the installed talent). As a result, the HR and the performance review systems in place are not equipped to track specific hard skills, domain skills and competencies in terms of the various job functions and products nor are they in a position to bring out a quantitative assessment of the trends, changes and gaps in employee skills. This cripples a well-informed talent procurement strategy, and an effective training program with no inventory of available hard skills, required hard skills, and existing gaps thereby affecting innovation and the product and global center strategy of organizations.
