Organization Skills assessment and Reference Architecture
The other day I was participating in the engineering skills assessment discussion and it dawned on me that mapping the skills to a reference architecture makes is much easier and simpler discussion to have. The reference architecture enabled us to first list the categories and drill into each of them to define the skills as well as leveling required for Architects, Developers, QA and Managers positions.
- Having a reference architecture also helps in organization (engineering) skills assessment
- The Skills Assessment / Mapping is independent of Governance and Organization. However, Governance drive where these resources belong
