Skills Matrix to answer the question: Can I take a vacation?
Does anyone have the cross-training to do my job so I can take a break?
This versatile Matrix template is the Swiss Army knife of your Lean toolkit.
It is most commonly used as a Training & Skills Matrix - to define and measure the skills and training that your people have vs. the skills and training they need.
Which often quickly morphs into a Cross Training Matrix - to ensure that at least someone has at least the minimal skills & training needed to allow each team member the opportunity to take a week off every now and again.
This tool was originally designed as a Project Training Plan to identify who needs what training for a specific project (perhaps a computer software project?)
And it can also be used as a Hiring Skills Matrix to compare the strengths and weaknesses of job candidates.
