Skills

The skills framework that we are using was created by the non-profit organization, the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) Foundation, which is comprised of representatives from the IT industry to create tools for the IT industry. Using the SFIA standard provides a common language of IT skills that can be used not only within our own department, but also as we work with others within our industry. The overall framework contains 96 skills to cover the broad spectrum of technology. From this pool of 96 skills, we  selected the skills that currently apply to our operations at ASU.
