Step 1: Identify the capacity requirements for NIPN (2/5)
The NIPN capacity matrix
A NIPN capacity matrix, which is derived from the NIPN Capacity Framework, is used to organise the capacities required in a logical way. It represents the ideal and a basis for identifying the capacity gaps. The aim is to generate a list of required capacities for each empty box.
When the process of filling out the tables for each of the levels of the Nutrition Capacity Matrix is complete, a comprehensive list of all capacity requirements for the smooth functioning of a NIPN has been compiled.
Functional or ‘soft’ skills are as important as technical skills and knowledge, so should be listed separately (see the text box below).
