Does anyone have any skill matrices for different levels of analysts e.g. Junior, Intermediate and Senior Analyst?

I am in the process of writing a skills matrix for QA staff in my organisation as part of a development and training programme.

I wondered if anyone did the same and could share any skills (high - level detail) so I don't miss anything.

I think this might help -

If that is a little too avant garde for you, i'd suggest asking several members of the team to come up with their own matrix and comparing them. If no one includes the skill, maybe you didn't overlook it -- maybe it just isn't that important for your team right now?

I am looking for one as well! This is more related to career development so my QA testers have some guidance on the path they can take to improve on a personal development front.
