Rather than measuring the level of skills, I recommend you measuring the effectiveness of each department. To measure effectiveness of each department, you need to identify the measures of performance for each department.
Mere having skill is not sufficient. What if those skills do not translate into productivity? Secondly, how will you handle a situation wherein employees have sufficient skills however, it does not improve the organisational performance?
Take the case of employees Yahoo or Dell. For both these companies, employees have high level of IQ and they have sufficient skills also. However, both these factors have failed to improve the business performance. Of course both the companies have failed in strategic management is altogether different thing.
For further query if any, your may organise telephonic discussion with your "boss".
