Skills Audit

Knowing the skills of your organisation.
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:

Know your people

  • It determines whether the organisation
    can meet its goals.

  • Without this information the organisation
    doesn’t know where to improve.

  • Training and development will be
    better targeted.

  • Recruiting needs are better defined and
    more likely to result in the most
    appropriate candidate.

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.
