Divya Sharma

Abstract: Competency mapping is one of the leading HRM initiatives of identifying the skills necessary for performing in a job. In this study we have focused on identifying the skills for IT professionals and analyzing the effect of those skills on their performance at workplace. This is an exploratory study which utilizes both qualitative and quantitative approach of problem solving. The qualitative research through literature review had helped us in building the foundation for the quantitative assessment. It is a sample survey research where the objectives and hypotheses were designed only after performing thorough review of literature. The statistical assessment of the recorded responses had been done in order to prove our hypotheses which were framed in the beginning. The results and their discussion had helped us in believing more strongly over the application of competency mapping within the industry. This study also laid the path for future researchers and scope of the same in the Indian IT industry.
