This paper reports on a collaborative project to integrate an IT organisational capability framework, the IT Capability Maturity Framework (IT-CMF) with an IT skills framework, the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). The aim is to develop an integrated tool and method for improving IT capability at a strategic organisational level through a focused improvement plan which also identifies key skills needed to drive that improvement. The research, policy and practice drivers are discussed and the method of mapping the two frameworks is described. Finally, the proposed user journey and prototype tools are described and plans for future development considered.
