This allowed for a workforce capabilities program to achieve the objective of an Agile IT organization. A multi-year program was formulated to look at multiple dimensions like people processes, metrics, systems, career framework and competency alignment.
Career framework was defined for all roles in application services and infrastructure. Competencies were mapped to each role in alignment with enterprise-wide HR directives. Metrics were defined to track the effectiveness of the program.
