SFIA: Skills Framework for the Information Age
SFIA lets you take a vague statement like "5 years experience as a software developer" and turn it into a quantitative measure that shows you how you compare with others who have similar experience. There are 121 skills divided into 7 levels in SFIA version 8.
Measure your skills in the ManawaTech member's area. See skills for the whole region in the Heat Map.
A number of large local companies use SFIA to help them design a scalable personnel framework directed by business rules. It results in better job design, structured personnel development, tools for mentoring, and a way to simply know what skills you have in the building.
