Qualifications and proficiency scales

Hello,

I'm reviewing our job descriptions in MS Word documents and trying to standardize and create SAP HR Qualification records. Anticipating that I need to develop them so we are able to compare them later, I'm having trouble with a few.

1) Some of the existing job descriptions require a certain number of years of 'related experience'. For this, I expect to set up a Related Experience qualification with scale proficiencies of 1, 2, 3 years, etc.. However, others mention the specific experience required. For example, '10 years experience in cost accounting'... How is this handled? Should I create each one individually with a scale of Yes/No?

2) Most of the 'formal education' requirements are pretty clear. I expect to create, for example, an 'accounting degree' qualification with scale proficiencies of associates, bachelors, masters, etc. However, others say 'Bachelors degree in Business or Marketing'. I considered setting up alternative qualifications but then a bachelors in Marketing would have to be an alternative to a bachelors in Business in every case, correct? How should this be handled?

I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Best regards,

Mirna

    hai,

    for your question 1 -

    yes you have to do for each one and while creating the qualification groups take the scale as YES/NO/UNKNOW or Min. / Maximum years of Experience Scale.

    question 2 -

    you have to create all, the list of education & certificates etc., was already created in IT0022 Education.

    copy from that and create.

    Best regards.....

      Hi Praneeth,

      I looked at the Qualifications already created in IT0022, but they seemed not to be as robust as I would prefer. For example, 'a good knowledge of Excel' doesn't seem to fit our existing requirements of 'strong', 'excellent' and 'expert' requirements, The existing Word job descriptions suggest to me that I need an "Excel" qualification with a scope of "novice", "capable", "fluent" and "expert"... am I over-thinking this?

      Best regards,

      Mirna
