HOW IS IT USEFUL TO ME?The Competency Framework is designed to benefit professionals, organizations and the industry as a whole.
- Professionals: Identify your competencies and plan your career path.
- Organizations: Assess applicants against a standardized set of competencies.
- Industry: Establish consistency across all titles and positions in multiple sectors of the industry
- Academic Institutions: Prepare students to enter the field
"The Competency Framework sets a standard, if you will, of capabilities for the digital analytics industry. It's really helped me explain what I need to my manager, and it's given credibility for what I think I need because I have something to back me up. It's really helping me design the structure of the team over time. Now that I have a bit of a head count to play with, I can configure the team for the skills I need now and those that I can train my people to do going forward." - Elena Surcheva, DAA Member
