Best-practices to support better skills tracking and management. 



The Resource Management Institute's third annual survey on Skills Tracking and Management

For many organizations being able to characterize resource supply through role definition and build and manage an effective skills database continues to be among the top challenges to achieving resource management effectiveness. This survey, sponsored by Kantata, provides data and insights into these pitfalls, and best-practices to support better skills tracking and management practices. 

Key Insights From the Survey

  • 27% of businesses are still using Excel/Access to store skills data
  • 59% of orgs reported that their current skills database does not effectively support their business needs
  • Improving resource management will require skills data to work more universally for forecasting and career development
  • Most companies focus on "hard" skills only. For those serving external clients, "soft" skills are key to improved customer satisfaction
