The global skills and competency framework for the digital world

SFIA View: Software engineering competencies

Software engineering competencies

We have designed SFIA to be flexible. SFIA users have developed this view of SFIA to provide a quick start identification of the SFIA skills which are most relevant to software engineering competencies.

SFIA provides a common language throughout the people and skills management cycle.  This improves communication and understanding for all involved e.g. business and technology leaders, front-line managers, employees, HR, learning and development, students and academic institutions.

Software engineering skills and competencies at a glance

The skills at a glance page provides a one-page summary of the SFIA software engineering related skills and competency levels.

How to use the software engineering view

We have also published advice and guidance to help you use SFIA and the software engineering view. These pages are in English only.

As with all applications of SFIA; you should consider the software engineering view against your specific organisational context and business objectives.

  • The intention is not to draw a hard boundary around these skills or to imply that other SFIA skills are not appropriate.
  • When you are familiar with this view -  it is likely that you will refer to the full SFIA framework for additional and complementary skill definitions.
