How to add a skill?

For the best skill management, all skills must be categorized and follow the structure rules:

  1. No redundancy - one entity in the whole skill inventory
  2. Skills are placed in the lowest structure level, which is skill groups (read more about structure)
  3. Skills are in groups; groups are in domains, domains are in categories, categories are top-level structures

 

Definition of skill:

  • Name - should be unique and follow general naming conventions
  • Description - should be short and descriptive
  • Location - skill should be categorized in a way that other peers could easily find (If the skill could fall in many categories, the most common should be chosen)
  • Type of scale (can be default gradation scale or custom, read more about the advanced type of scales)
  • Relations with other skills (a skill dependent on or is a prerequisite for other skills)
