Is issued at It can be seen here that the ‘SFIA Framework’ provides a ‘Model’ that is made up of a single ‘Matrix’. This is made up of two main elements that are the ‘Skillset’ and the ‘Level of Responsibility’. The ‘Skillset’ here refers to the broad categorisation of all IT skills that is made up of a number of ‘Category(ies)’. Each ‘Category’ is made up of one or more ‘Subcategory(ies)’, each of which is made up of one or more ‘Skill(s)’.

It is made quite clear that it is the actual skills themselves that are important rather than how they are categorised. Indeed, people are encouraged to define their own structure of classification and not just to use SFIA in an off-theshelf manner. Like many of these frameworks, the emphasis is largely focused on the technical skills rather than the soft or human skills that may be required for a person. This is a problem that is common to many of the frameworks, but it should be borne in mind that a boundary must be put onto a framework somewhere and this boundary is quite clear in SFIA.
