I suggest that you search the web using google to find the answers and then pose a question giving some background info about yourself and the scenario with reference to which you are seeking the answers.
Please do not be offended.

Skill Matrix Is the Overall representation of workers with respect to their skills.
e.g there are 3 operations that are carried out to produce a product and three workers are required. then giving grades how efficiently they can perform their own operation and forming matrix will conclude to skill matrix.
If we train 1 worker to do all three operation ,then it will be called multiskilling .

It's not that I do not want to answer. As an MBA student you should learn to search for information, rather than seek info on-a-plate. I have taught MBA students for years.

The following extract from a student's post should inform you about my method. If you search CiteHr for info on 5S you will find a lot of posts.

Hey Jiah,
How are u doing dear?? Howz your project going? Skill matrix is basically the chart containing all the skill required to do a particular job wherein we can rate the individual's competencies on the basis of fixed parameters.
M attaching some formats or example for skill matrix. Hope this will help you in understanding the things better.

Hi all,
Thanks surbhi,the sheets are really helpful. i just have one doubt like when we used to have skill matrix in our organisation we used to get the skills evaluated by team leaders or shift supervisors.and they used to rate the employees.I hardly could understand the criteria for the same and i often doubted the credibitily of the same..
is there any method to evaluate the skills on actual basis or fair basis.

Hi Neha,
The technical skills are always be evaluated by immediate supervisor or can be done by indirect reporting manager as well. And credibility is a big question for me as well. Lets our seniors answer it.
And to evaluate it on actual basis we can go one step higher i.e. competency mapping.

Hey surbhi thanks for taking care of the query.Even i m looking for this answer since long..We request the seniors to please guide us through.
Even in the competency mapping what i have observed is that the main say is of supervisor only. so if we are not getting the real picture then there's no genuine output from such things...
Shouldnt we try and do it by taking the real work life things into consideration
example : like when we take the case of production somebody will be doing the designing,tooling arrangements etc.so when it comes to designing then shudnt we consider the facts that in drawings made by the employee in which area he has emerged as the strongest and where he got struck.. even if we track 3-4 such examples we can get the picture and then we can discuss the same with the employee to get the real picture ??
Looking forward to replies..
