The global skills and competency framework for the digital world

SFIA views

SFIA views present the contents of SFIA from different viewpoints. These views address the interests of specific professional disciplines, industry topics and framework users.

Full framework views

The conventional view groups the SFIA skills into categories and sub-categories. This is the view used for the SFIA complete reference guide, the A3 summary sheet and basic navigation.

Use the A to Z listing when you are looking for a specific skill and you know its name.

Focused views

These views of SFIA provide a quick-start list of the SFIA skills which are most relevant to a selection of professional disciplines, industry topics and complementary frameworks. 

Using the SFIA Views

SFIA is a flexible resource - the focussed views show that the skills in SFIA can be easily grouped, filtered, and viewed in alternative ways to support specific professional disciplines, industry topics and complementary frameworks.

  • These views can provide a quick start approach to understanding and using SFIA.
  • As with all applications of SFIA — you should consider these views against your specific organisational context and business objectives. Please refer to the full SFIA framework if you think something is missing.
  • The full reference guide (PDF, requires free registration/login) and this website provide advice and guidance on the adoption of SFIA.
  • There is also an active global ecosystem of SFIA Partners, SFIA Consultants and Practitioners. They are available for advice on adopting SFIA. Full details are available here.
