Skills Gap Analysis – Qube-Profiler

At Qube we believe the cornerstone to effective Procurement and Supply Chain training is the establishment of clearly defined goals together with an understanding of the gap between existing competence and the required state.Utilising the latest Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) technology we have developed Qube-Profiler, an on-line Formative Diagnostic Assessment Tool (F-DAT). Based on our Supply Chain Competency model, Qube-Profiler forms the basis of our integrated approach to people development enabling us to both measure and benchmark an individual’s underpinning knowledge with respect to task focussed competencies specific to their job role including:

1 Determining Requirements
2 Analysing Supply Markets
3 Appraising Suppliers
4 Developing Supply Strategies
5 Preparing the Contract
6 Sourcing
7 Negotiation
8 Managing the Supply Contract
9 Managing International Logistics
10 Managing Inventory
11 Measuring Performance in Supply Management

Qube-Profiler utilises ‘Scorable Application Forms’ each containing a number of multiple choice questions specific to an identified competency or module. You can nominate up to 11 modules to be completed – each module takes approximately 10 – 15 minutes to complete.Qube-Profiler is the first application in our ‘multi-method’ approach to formative diagnostic assessment.

Delivery and Cost

Qube-Profiler provides an ‘on-line assessment’ facility to help understand your ‘technical’ procurement knowledge and your awareness with respect to task focussed competencies and is an integral part of our work based Programmes and forms the basis of our Initial Competency Profiling Assessment.

By utilising the latest Computer Assisted Assessment technology, Qube-Profiler provides a number of advantages, not least;

1 Constant Access to Assessment:
Qube-Profiler is available 24/7, meaning you can complete your assessment at a time and location of your own choice.

These can then be evaluated alongside other relevant data you may provide, such as your CV and Job Description, to enable us to make an informed recommendation as to the most appropriate level of qualification relating to procurement or the supply chain for which you may be interested in enrolling.

All answers are saved in a password protected application ensuring no access by unauthorised parties.
