Skills audit - the key

A key piece of information an organisation needs to know is what skills and knowledge the organisation has. This information is essential for a number of reasons:

Skills audit is a process that can be used to identify the skill gaps in an organisation. The outcome is a training needs analysis that identifies where training is needed.

So a skills audit results in:
  • An understanding of the skills required and gaps the organisation currently has.
  • A targeted analysis of development needs.
  • A listing of people who need development.
  • Data that can be used for purposes such as internal selection.
  • Information that can be used for dynamic succession planning.
