Last month we launched the SFIA 8 consultation. Here’s a 1 minute update on progress and a reminder of how you can get involved.
The SFIA 8 Scoping Workshop this afternoon was a great success. Almost too much so. There were so many areas of interest that we could not do justice to them all.
The SFIA Foundation has approved plans to publish an updated version of SFIA in 2021. This is the largest and most visible part of the ongoing commitment to ensure SFIA remains relevant and useful for the global industry.
The SFIA Foundation is launching a SFIA community initiative to identify and share recognised and generally accepted good practice in the area of SFIA skills profiles.
Additional bodies of knowledge have been added to the list and there are now 37 in total.
As well as providing the SFIA skills and competency framework, the SFIA Foundation provides guidance on its use for all aspects of human capital development. These are available from the Foundation itself or through the global ecosystem of accredited practitioner, consultant and partners.
Whilst it might not like feel like it with the weather in Melbourne yesterday, it’s still summer and that means, time for another Summer Mentoring Session.
Here is an update about the activities of the SFIA Foundation over 2019. As well as publishing the SFIA skills and competency framework, the Foundation also supports the global ecosystem that has evolved to support SFIA use throughout the world. We typically announce our activities via LinkedIn or Twitter along with one or two emails a year to those who have asked to be kept informed of developments.
The uses of SFIA views enable a quick start approach to using SFIA in focused situations.
As part of our collaboration, the #SFIA Foundation has published SFIA competency profiles for The European Union (EU) ICT professional profiles.
SFIA is driven by its global user base from over 180 countries; many have requested more guidance and in response SFIA has published extra guidance and explanation on knowledge and also made links to various BoKs.
For 20 years the SFIA Foundation has developed and made available the SFIA Framework for organisations to use, to manage and develop the capability of their workforce and for individuals to use to develop their own skills. The SFIA Foundation has also provided high-level guidance on using SFIA and provided a global community and ecosystem to share good practice.
Many users have asked for guidance on skills assessment and want to use SFIA as the internationally recognised, de-facto standard to assess, benchmark and recognise the skills for ICT, digital transformation and software engineering professionals.
