> IRMS Competency Chart
The IRMS Competency Chart presents the combined competencies that make up the work of professionals and technicians in information resources management occupations. It can be used by individuals to evaluate their own skills and to determine areas where they should pursue additional training.
On an institutional level, this material can be applied in defining job profiles, developing competency-based professional development programs, negotiating and customizing training programs from external sources, developing career planning programs, recruitment profiles and individual position descriptions.
On a broader scale, the Competency Chart can be used to increase understanding of the roles information professionals play, especially in organisations whose core business is not information resources management.
