How to Use a Skills Mapping Template

Skills mapping is a valuable tool to help you identify the skills your team needs to succeed. Follow these steps to create your own skills mapping template:

1. Identify key skills

Start by making a list of the skills your team needs to reach their goals. Make sure to include both technical and soft skills, as well as any other skills that are critical for success.

Create tasks in ClickUp to list out all the key skills for your team.

2. Assign a score to each skill

Once you’ve identified the skills, assign each one a score from 1-5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. This will give you a better idea of where your team’s strengths and weaknesses lie.

Use custom fields in ClickUp to assign a score to each skill.

3. Create the template

Create a spreadsheet or table that includes each of the skills from the list, along with their corresponding score.

Use the Table view in ClickUp to quickly and easily create your skills mapping template.

4. Add additional info

You can also add additional information into your template if you want, such as the employee’s name or job title.

Create custom fields in ClickUp to easily track extra info on your template.

5. Assign tasks

Once the template is complete, assign tasks to each team member to start working on improving their skills. Set deadlines, milestones, and goals for each task to ensure that everyone is on track.

Use tasks in ClickUp to assign tasks and set deadlines for each team member.

6. Track progress

Finally, set up a recurring task in ClickUp to review and update the skills mapping template periodically. This will allow you to track the progress of each team member and identify any areas that need more focus.

Set a recurring task in ClickUp to check in on the progress of your team’s skills mapping.
