Projects → Task Plan → Concepts → Skills
In many cases, it's the actual skill (or group of skills) that is the reason behind why a particular resource (or group of resources) is assigned to work in a task plan. By using skills as a key data point while doing resource allocations, and by using skills in conjunction with resource roles, you can help to ensure that resources are being given appropriate assignments.
The level of detail that your organization needs depends as much on how your organization wants to track and manage skills usage and availability as it does on the size of the organization itself. In general, the larger the organization, the greater the need for more refined skills management and tracking. Whatever approach is taken, it is more important that the list of skills (and roles) be meaningful to all of the people involved in managing projects in your organization.
