Capability Models - Overview

With the November '22 Release, administrators can create Capability Models to set skill requirements for specific groups in the organization. With Capability Models, administrators define key skills for an audience by selecting one or more organizational units to align to the model and selecting critical skills those users should either have or be developing. Critical skills are suggested based on the Capability Model details or can be searched for by keyword.

Capability Models are managed in the new Capability Model library where administrators can create, edit, or deactivate models.

Suggested skills on the Skills Profile are now updated to prioritize critical skills from aligned models, if undeclared, even if undetected in their profile.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

This enhancement enables organizations to accurately define critical skills for specific audiences within the organization, such as those that share a common position, division, or location.
