The diagram below provides a high level depiction of the DevSkillDojo Skills Framework. The intention of this framework is to provide a considered method for structuring skills. Additionally, the framework serves as a guideline to prevent one-dimensional thinking w.r.t. skills, i.e. always equating skills with technologies.

Key Point for understanding the purpose of the framework: Projects and products are delivered by people with capabilities. The dictionary definition of "Capability" is roughly:

The ability to do [something]

But it is important to give more structure to this definition, so we use the following pattern:

A CAPABILITY is generally:

  • The application of one or more HARD SKILLS,
  • Guided by pre-existing underlying KNOWLEDGE
  • Using one or more TOOLS or TECHNOLOGIES
  • By a person with a set of SOFT SKILLS

Diagram Notes:
