Building and Retaining Talent with SFIA

Palmerston North Senior IT / ITP
24 Nov 2022, Thursday 12:00 PM. RSVP

Daniel Merriott from [Partner Consulting](https://partnerconsulting.nz/) is the NZ expert on [SFIA](https://www.manawa.tech/sfia) (Skills Framework for the Information Age). SFIA can take something vague like "I have 5 years software development experience" and make it very specific and measurable. You can use the results to plan training and development, for discovering hidden / unused skills in your staff (less need for contractors, better job satisfaction), and just for knowing what you have available to you. There is lots more to it. Come and hear Daniel explain it way better than I can. Around the same time, Daniel is speaking at the Software Developers Meetup to show individual devs and techies what it means for them at a personal level. This is a lunch event at a local cafe. Buy your own lunch on the way in. Expect some useful informal conversations with other local companies who use the framework or starting to adopt it. Date and time to be confirmed: it will either be Thursday 24 or Friday 25 November. Please check back here a week before the event in case it has changed.

Come and hear Daniel explain it way better than I can. Around the same time, Daniel is speaking at a lunch event for CEOS/CTOs to show people how SFIA works from the organisational side.
