My boss asked me to prepare a list of competencies that we want to see in the people we hire. I segregated the list in three main categories:
1. Ability
2. Knowledge
3. Skill

I did not further segregate the list. However, it could have been done for the number of years of experience the tester has, or as per the role someone is playing etc.
