    2. Create the map of skills by matching the required skills with the skillsets of the team members
  3. Plan for growing the skillset of the team
    1. Identify missing skills in the map of skills
    2. Provide necessary training; consider internal seminars and workshops to share the knowledge
    3. If possible, plan at least two team members for each key skill
    4. Consider using the map of skills in recruiting new team members
Risks
  1. The map of skills is too fine-grained

  2. The map of skills includes skills not required for the project
    1. The skillset of the team will never become complete
