#28 Digital Use Skills - introduce this area: change request deferred
Introduce a number of 'digital Use skills'
From Australian Public Sector SFIA Forum:
Consider introducing digital use skills mostly at L1 & L2
The reasoning behind this is that for many users their work is largely administrative and there are no skills identified in SFIA in this area. They may be 'stepping stones' for future roles or just may be users skills.
One reason for doing this is to enable all people working with IT systems being able to have a SFIA skills assessment to identify their skills rather than to have to exclude large numbers of staff because their skills don't naturally match the current scope of SFIA.
What we decided
Deferred. Add to SFIA development roadmap as a priority after SFIA7 launch.
What we changed
Detailed investigation into this area has identified significant potential and opportunity for SFIA to add value in this space.
The design authority board agreed that to give this topic the attention it deservces means we will not be able to include in the scope of SFIA7.
There is an appetite to progress this soon after the release of SFIA7. Any people of professional bodies who are interested in collaborating inthis should please contact the SFIA updates manager.
