In its most basic form, a skills inventory — also called, a skills library, a skills catalog, skills ontology or skills taxonomy, is a centralized and structured database of skills data, and qualifications that helps to create a unified understanding of skills within an organization. Employees can then be assessed on these skills, and then individually or holistically reported on to find and act on skills gaps. Read more about getting started with your skills inventory.
