Close the Skills Gap by Resolving the Confidence Gap

Again we start with a paper. This one written by Howard M. Cohan who quotes Amy Kardel, Chairwoman of the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) board of directors and president of Clever Ducks, an IT service provider who sees the options for companies trying to fill their IT skills needs as hiring-new-people or training-the-current-staff.

It is a given that all companies are now heavily dependent on IT resources, hence also in need of trained professionals to expand and maintain those IT resources. Yet it appears that our schools, as much as they try, are not satisfying the level of this talent shortfall. What is a company to do?

Note that we are long past the age when the information systems failed that the staff knew how to pick up a sheet of paper and a pencil and continue as a functioning business entity

Join us for a discussion of solving the shortfall of IT skilled workers.
