  • Houston, TX (1888PressRelease) April 25, 2011 - Zinnov Management Consulting, a leading management-consulting firm, today announced the launch of its innovative "Global Skill Analysis Model" directed towards regularly estimating the hard skills, domain skills and competencies of employees across global centers of technology organization giving a fair view of the skills distribution both in terms of employee and from the product requirement perspective. The model arises from the need for a well chalked out futuristic talent strategy with a continuous human capital capability management and skill monitoring system to enable global centers gain competitive edge and achieve their goals.

    In the light of globalization and the recent financial crisis, human resource is identified as a key determinant of an organization's future roadmap. As the executing agent of specialized skills human capital is a top priority for globalization, innovation, and time-to-market with implementation of strategic human resource management practices gaining precedence and lending competitive advantage to businesses operating across national boundaries. This aspect of global talent planning along with the need to define the product and global center roadmap as well as to understand the skills required in future for various products is addressed by the Skill Analysis Model.

    Zinnov's Skill Analysis Model as such is a reliable system, built on a robust methodology and driven by data from meticulously designed surveys. Apart from drawing an estimate of skill distribution by product family, job level, reporting structure and function at different global centers, it also highlights gaps at different global centers and variations in expertise level within the same skill set thereby facilitating a foresighted talent strategy and training program.

    Speaking about the Model, Mr. Vijay Swaminathan, Co-Founder & Managing Principal, Zinnov LLC said, "With the complexity of a workforce distributed across various experience and functional levels across global centers, the Skill Analysis Model lends multi-pronged benefits by providing an analysis of organization wide skill inventory, enabling quick talent ramp-up, improving efficiency and saving on people cost. The Profile Builder, an outstanding component of the model, gives a ready estimate of the product-wise skills requirement, plays a crucial role in global center and talent roadmap and assists in talent planning and team composition."

    Gap analysis and peer group analysis feature among the other components of the model. While the gap analysis in skill proficiency caters to training requirements or external talent requirements depending on the situation, peer group analysis gives a very precise and detailed picture of how an employee rates in comparison to his peers.

    The Skill Analysis Model addresses the long-standing hitch in talent strategy, in the way of technology organizations towards globalizing their functions. As a complete system, apart from giving an estimate of the organization-wide skill and its competency, it helps understand future skill requirements for various products, aids a well-informed talent procurement strategy, an effective training program and helps talent planning and team composition.
