Abstract: It is very important to understand the business capabilities that each human resource can exercise from the skills they possess. We developed a visualisation technique to identify what type of business capability a human resource can exercise by mapping business capabilities, the skills required for the capabilities and the skills a resource possesses. We extracted relationships between business capabilities and required skills from the 'Skill Standards for IT Professionals' documents using Japanese text analysis. These relationships are visualised as a business capability map in a graph structure. Then, based on a questionnaire to determine the skills a human resource has, we mapped human resources on the business capability map. As a result, it became possible to determine their business capabilities and to identify appropriate tasks for each human resource.
