You manage your IT assets with great care – from software licences to hardware maintenance. But how well do you know the most important part of your IT department – its people? In this webinar, Donald H Taylor explores using the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) to deal with issues such as identifying and tackling skills gaps, career mobility and developing clear, consistent job descriptions.

In June version 7 of the framework was released, cementing its position as the international standard for IT skills. Donald was instrumental in the creation of version 1 of SFIA in the early 2000s and Andy and his team at Lexonis were involved in the development of the first SFIA accredited software. Join Donald and Andy to explore how best to use the latest version of SFIA to successfully manage the IT skills in your organisation.
