European e-Competence Framework
e-CF, the solution for mismatch between supply and demand
The e-Competence Assessment is based on the e-Competence Framework
(e-CF). This frame of reference is especially developed for professionals who
work in the ICT domain. It describes which e-Competences are needed in
organizations and provides a common language with regard to these competences.
By using the same terminology it is easier to match the different competences.
The main benefit is preventing mismatch between demand (what does the organization need) and supply (what a professional is able to do).
Competence areas aligned with ICT business processes
The e-CF consists of four dimensions:
- 5 competence areas derived from the ICT business processes (Plan, Build, Run, Enable and Manage).
- 40 e-Competences spread out over the 5 competence areas.
- 5 levels of professionalization (levels of skills).
- Examples of knowledge and skills related to every competence.
