Can I recommend that you have a look at the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), the UK standard for IT professional skills. It was set up in 1999 and is now on its 3rd release. It has about 500 organisations using it in the UK - some very large, some quite small.
You can download SFIA from www.sfia.org.uk for no charge. You can also browse through the competencies at www.sfia3.com.
As well as effectively being the IT professional standard in the UK, SFIA is now being adopted elsewhere (increasingly in the US) and has been translated into Japanese.
For other thoughts on IT competencies, see my blog: http://donaldhtaylor.wordpress.com/2...il-ipcm-et-al/
If you would like to know anything more, please mail me at .
Disclosure: I am a volunteer member of the Steering Committee of the SFIA Foundation, but have no financial interest in SFIA. Also, the SFIA3.com web site runs on software provided by my company, InfoBasis .

My pleasure. If I can help in any other way, please do mail me on . We have recently started a SFIA User Group in the UK, so even if I cannot help you, I can find someone else who can.
