  • Publish a validated RSD syntax and meta-data specification that can be implemented in various use-cases.

  • Test basic functionality of the Open Skills Management Toolkit (OSMT) to inform feature updates ahead of open source release.

  • Learn common best practices to implement open skills with mature partner networks to create an Open Skills Playbook and implementation guide.

  • Establish a coalition of RSD advocates to champion the use of RSDs to the OSN.




What these first OSN Pilots are not for:
