Multi skilling in any organization enhances it's capability and flexibility to deal with multiple situations, especially contingencies. Multi skilling is a part of an organization's succession plan, wherein employees are made competent enough to take up roles(Old or New) other than their primary roles.

From India, Delhi
As per my understanding multi-skilling can be helpful for MANAGEMENT for two purposes:-
1. contingency plan (Horizontal multi-skilling)
2. succession plan (vertical multi-skilling)
* and somewhere it can enhance employee engagement
so anyone can help me to find more purposes for which management should drive multi-skilling projects.
