Interesting, we just finished something similar for a consulting company.
One area they covered which you didn't was User Experience Interaction
(yeah, LOTS of consultant speak in this).

UEI covered Information Architecture (more consultant speak) for Content
Grouping, Site Mapping, Navigation Systems, and Knowledge Structure. It also
covered Interaction Design of workflows and Functional Specs; Content
Development in the form of writing or editing or planning; and Visual Design
covering Illustration to Style Guides and Visual Standards.

I think these areas, if you can translate the consultant speak, would fall
under the Tech Comm umbrella. They also covered specific tool skills.

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
