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 Operations Management & Supervision 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 Repairing is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, Critical Thinking, Monitoring, Speaking, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Time Management, Coordination, Management of Personnel Resources, Writing, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Active Learning, Social Perceptiveness, Mathematics, Persuasion, Instructing, Negotiation, Learning Strategies, Management of Financial Resources, Service Orientation, Management of Material Resources, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Operations Analysis, Troubleshooting, Science, Operation and Control, Technology Design, Programming, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Equipment Selection, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
