These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Logistics, Materials, & Supply Chain Management majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Management of Financial Resources is very distinctive for majors, but the Critical Thinking, Reading Comprehension, Monitoring, Active Listening, Speaking, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Coordination, Writing, Time Management, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Management of Personnel Resources, Active Learning, Social Perceptiveness, Mathematics, Persuasion, Negotiation, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Management of Financial Resources, Service Orientation, Management of Material Resources, Operations Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Science, Technology Design, Programming, Equipment Selection, Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
