OK, theory time people!

I've been asked to contribute to our a company wide skills matrix. Each area
will have it's own matrix with one being 'general' attributes such as time
planning, business awareness etc etc. Each 'skill' is broken into two levels
(or three if required).

So (and this is probably more of a check) what should I put down for

So far I have (and yes it COULD be a huge list, but we've been told to stick
to main areas):
Product Documentation Creation
Planning Content

Tool Knowledge
FrameMaker Knowledge
RoboHelp Knowledge

Information Design
Writing Discipline
My main concern is missing something obvious and making a rod for our backs
later on (not sure how this matrix is going to be used, just that it MUST
been done... ho hum)

Any advice, or info is welcome.
