Skills Matrix

A training and development schedule for employees showing skills acquired and to be acquired. In the example, employees are listed in the left column and skills are shown at the top. 

The shading indicates the extent to which an employee has mastered the skill in question. The dates in the blank or partially shaded boxes are targets for acquiring the required skills. This tool is especially useful for tracking the progress of employees being trained in the various skills needed to perform multiple operations.
