Identify Skill Gaps Faster with the new Competency Analysis Chart

Have you ever wanted an easier way to find top skill areas for development and investment, or gain valuable insights into the capabilities of the different segments of your workforce?

We’re excited to announce a new way for Skills Base Enterprise license holders to rapidly identify and visualize skill and competency gaps.

In addition to the trusted real-time Skills Matrix and skills matrix reporting functionality there is now an additional option to see and plot skill and competency levels on a bubble chart.

Using the new chart you can drill down through each skill category to isolate and analyze specific groups of skills within an entity (team, role or location). And, the chart can also be configured to display data based on skill targets assigned to the viewed entity, or individuals’ targets which could come from any source.

The chart is also accompanied by the raw data which can be viewed and sorted easily.
