Because – skill inventory
Skill inventory identifies what skills the collective intelligence has already. This exercise starts with the definition of a capability framework that identifies, for each relevant logical role in the company, the proficiency level across the new skills and capabilities (and the established ones that enable the new).
The resulting self-assessment creates a baseline not only for individuals but also for groups (such as departments and regions) that drives the prioritization of learning interventions – in addition to generating additional benefits for staffing and workforce planning.
Importantly, we use advanced network analytics techniques to understand the structure of the networks where the new knowledge is present and is shared, for instance, to identify “knowledge gurus” and “knowledge brokers” – i.e., people who are accessible to many of their colleagues.
