B2V SFIA Tool is a dynamic assessment tool based on situational problem-solving competence, in which each skill is evaluated in three aspects: the familiarity with the skills demands, the self-assessment of the skill domain and the expertise in it by solving problems in situations associated with each one. The item's design is scalar and the options represent the domain levels. In addition, they are presented in a random manner, both in the order of the competencies and in the response options, to ensure that the evaluated person has no biased or manipulated answers. It allow a comprehensive diagnosis of the level of development and the competences evaluated per collaborator and any proficiency can be outlined. The same tool is used to evaluate the development level per competence for a person vs the required standard (Gap analysis to develop a development plan) as well for a given group (group gap analysis to craft a training program).
