Managing for IT skills is never easy at the firm level. Technologies change constantly and rapidly. The supply and demand of IT skills fluctuate. Firms do not have commonly recognized frameworks to manage IT skills of their workforce. A consistent taxonomy of IT skills is underdeveloped and used infrequently in industry. This book provides the basic vocabulary and managerial framework for managing strategically the IT workforce at the firm level. It also informs managers what tools and services are available to assess the skill levels of their IT workforce and job candidates. Finally, it gives different perspectives on managing IT skills - how individuals, HR managers, educators, and governments approach IT skills management.
