The human dimension is a critical factor in any organization, especially in software companies where the production process is essentially intellectual. One key aspect of the software engineering workforce is identifying the people best suited for development roles. Despite its importance, there is little support for this task, leading to unease and misunderstandings among the human people involved. A capability-based procedure can aid managers at small to medium-sized software organizations.
Index Terms:
human capabilities, software roles, person-role fit
