What is a Skills Taxonomy

A taxonomy is a classification system that allows the hierarchization of several levels of information. A skill taxonomy supports organizations to organize and strategize the required Competencies and Skills to run certain functions or the entire business. 

The requirements may be focused on operational skills or may include soft skills and behaviors. The depth and level of details of skill taxonomies vary greatly from one organization to another.

Such a classification system provides a methodology for measuring the degree to which a workforce is able to meet the objectives of the organization.
