For the best skill management, all skills must be categorized and follow the structure rules:
No redundancy - one entity in the whole skill inventory
Skills are placed in the lowest structure level, which is skill groups (read more about structure)
Skills are in groups; groups are in domains, domains are in categories, categories are top-level structures
Definition of a skill:
Name - should be unique and follow general naming conventions
Description - should be short and descriptive
Location - skill should be categorized in a way that other peers could easily find (If the skill could fall in many categories, the most common should be chosen)
Type of scale (can be default gradation scale or custom, read more about the advanced type of scales)
Relations with other skills (a skill dependent on or is a prerequisite for other skills)

Click on the add skill button and fill in the necessary fields.
