Solving the IT Staffing Shortage: Challenges and Strategies
White Paper, February 2007
Summary: Why is it so hard to get qualified IT staff at the intermediate and senior levels right now, where a combination of technology and business skills are required? What needs to be done to alleviate the current crunch and to ensure a good supply of qualified people for the future? How can the CIO Association of Canada (CIOCAN) make an effective contribution? As a first step, CIOCAN’s Advocacy Committee has commissioned this white paper, drawing on the available research and the expertise of its members and selected external parties. Once vetted by the membership, the paper’s recommendations will be used as the basis for an action plan that will put CIOCAN’s talents and resources to optimum use.
