IT Decisions Project
The IT Decisions project, funded by the Maine Economic Improvement Foundation, has completed its first phase – a design study of an advanced employment Website. Although the study focused on the IT ecosystem (workers, trainers and employers) the system is applicable to many if not most professions. Innovative features of the design include a skills focus, where qualifications and needs are expressed in a common skill vocabulary; automatic substantiation, where worker claims to skills are substantiated by their training and experience; employer- and trainer-initiated searches, where potential workers and students are automatically identified, and a uniquely flexible matching procedure.
