Competencies, Categories, and the Skills Hierarchy

Using Competency Management, you can develop multilevel hierarchies of categories and skills relevant to your organization's industry. You build a hierarchy by associating skills with categories through parent-child relationships. Defining skills involves setting up the necessary categories.

As illustrated in Figure 6, the Competency Administration screen provides a Skills Hierarchy on the left, which is represented by a folder. Expanded below the folder are several skills categories, which are represented by file icons. The skills categories include other categories and skills. The right section of the screen includes the Category/Skill list, which shows records based on the selection in the Skills Hierarchy. Below the Category/Skill list is the Child Items list, which includes the records associated with the child records.
