What is skills mapping?

Skills mapping is the process of capturing and visualising identifiable skills at an individual, team, business function or enterprise level. This can include soft skills like problem-solving, teamwork and time management and hard skills – professional competencies which are applied in the workplace.

Understanding the specific skills available in your organisation plays a critical role in planning for the future, whether you’re looking to take on a significant new project or prepare for the impact of emerging technologies like AI.
