List of Bodies of Knowledge

A listing of Bodies of Knowledge which are relevant to SFIA-related professional disciplines.

The Context for SFIA describes how skills, behaviours, knowledge, certifications and qualifications are related in the design of the SFIA framework.

The SFIA and Bodies of Knowledge page provides more detailed guidance on the relationship between BoKs and the SFIA framework.

  • This is, of course, a small subset of the bodies of knowledge which are relevant to SFIA users and their professional disciplines
  • We plan to add to this list and create a useful resource for SFIA users
  • If you use or know of other "body of knowledge type" resources please contact the  with your suggestions
  • They do not need to be called "a body of knowledge" - but if they are a source of knowledge used by practitioners to guide their work then they could be listed here
  • This was a collaborative effort with volunteers from the IEEE-CS Professional & Educational Activities Board (PEAB) Engineering Disciplines Committee and the SFIA 7 Software Engineering Working Group.
  • listing and cross-promotion of bodies of knowledge and SFIA,
  • mapping SFIA skills and competency levels to the Knowledge Areas in your BoK,
  • development of generic SFIA role profiles related to your professional discipline. When aligned to SFIA skills and skill levels these provide a valuable resource for HR professionals, line managers, practice managers and practitioners.
