Organizations that do not completely understand the skills of their workforce will experience pains related to ineffective internal practices (e.g. workforce planning, talent acquisition, and learning & development) and be caught off guard when employees leave the organization and create a skills deficit. Create and leverage a skills inventory to proactively avoid this costly outcome. Use this blueprint to:
- Build a comprehensive repository of internal skills.
- Align your skills inventory with internal practices for greater business impact.
- Plan to leverage your skills inventory through ongoing maintenance and consistent use.
By leveraging a skills inventory, your organization will see an increase in productivity and competitive advantage in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
