Experience Level: Expert
Background: Currently we have a manual process in building a profile which has to be computerised.
which would speed up the process and ensure consistency.

Details of the process:

A consultant will be with the individual to challenge their choices, which they may later decide is not suitable.

Therefore the programme will require drag-and-drop functionality for the cards and the cards will have to be moveable. The program may be installed on a (Windows-based) tablet, so users can have it on their lap and drag and drop the cards.

The process for this in evaluating 'needs and values', is repeated (slightly differently) for 'skills'. Detailed specifications of the process is available below.

Specification: Should at least run on Windows machines with the possibility of being able to run on the internet. Therefore a Flash program with Java may suit this.

Inputs: Ideally, the value of the cards should be dynamic, as for the 'skills', there are around 200 cards.
There should be a text box for notes.
There should be either a text box or drop down menu for numbers (1-4) and (1-10).

Outputs: Some sort of record should be available for print and for saving. N.B. although it is in a spreadsheet-format on screen, the output should be in HTML, PDF or at least a format which is customisable.

So far, part of the system (interface, etc) has been done in Flash / AS3 / Air.

Stage 1 - Needs and Values

Step 1
There are 70 cards, with static values. Each card are statements regarding your needs and values for your next job.

Step 2
You sort these cards in to four columns. Very Important, Important, Little Importance, Prefer to Avoid. (Like in Solitaire)
There should be no limit under each column.
Also note that they may need to move one card from one column to another, even if it has been categorised. Therefore the cards need to be mobile.

Step 3
All the cards in Prefer to Avoid are removed.

Step 4
Arrange the ones of little importance in to 2 columns.
Therefore you have:
Very important, Important, (More) Important, (Less) Important

Step 5
Prioritise these cards. This purely means that the cards are movable.

Step 6
Remove the column of little importance.

Step 7
Then remove as little or as many cards as you like (from any of the columns) until you have 20 cards which are most important to you. So you may have 8 under very important, 4 under important, 8 under (more important).
You get rid of all the columns and put them under one column.

Step 8
Reduce these cards to 12

Step 9
The titles of these 12 cards will form the titles of a spreadsheet, say, in column A.

Step 10
Column B will have textboxes where you type the numbers of 1-10, hence providing a rating for each one of the titles.

Step 11
Add three columns with two sub columns each. The column header would be a job title. This would be an input textbox. Sub column A would be a rating from 1-4 (input, as above). Sub column B would be a dynamic box with personal rating x sub column A.

Step 12
Then add a further 5 columns and do the same!

Step 13
That's it for Needs and Values.
The spreadsheet should be saved somewhere. Perhaps some sort of output file.
Do exactly the same for Skills.

There are a few differences in skills, however.
- There are 200 unique cards (hence, why I think if we can base visual output from a text file, that would be ideal)
- You drill down to 24 cards, instead of 12.

Again, the spreadsheet should be saved somewhere.
