Webinar - University of South Florida - Focusing on Skills

Join Lani Boothman-Carpenter, Associate Director of Resource Management in the IT department at the University of South Florida (USF), to learn how IT focuses on employees' strengths and skills to align with the growing and changing needs of the University.

In addition to growing the talent needed to meet the IT needs of the University of South Florida, the USF IT Department must compete with the IT industry to recruit and retain IT employees.

  • One way they aim to keep up with industry while retaining and engaging the best talent is to focus less on roles and more on skills.
  • Focusing on skills helps the department to pivot and leverage internal resources to accomplish the University’s IT goals.
  • The SFIA framework lends itself well to the Agile methodologies that the department follows as it identifies the IT skills needed to perform various jobs in the IT industry.
