22 The IT Skills Gap IT Skills Gap 1.U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2.National Science Foundation 3.Harvey Nash 4.Robert Half Technology Multiple factors combine to create a growing IT skills gap Strong demand Baby boomer retirements: 45% of the working population or 1.8M IT workers 1 Low college IT enrollment 2 IT represents only 3.3% of students enrolled in higher education institutions 2.4% of all bachelor’s and 3.8% of all associates degrees awarded are in IT Insufficient training/preparation 93% of employers indicate there is an IT skills gap 3 84% of CIOs cite difficulties hiring skilled IT professionals 4 80% say the IT skills gap affects at least one business area such as productivity, customer service or security 1

23 Emotional Intelligence In a national survey of what employers are looking for in entry-level workers, specific technical skills are now less important than the underlying ability to learn on the job. After that, employers listed: Listening and oral communication Adaptability and creative responses to setbacks and obstacles Group and interpersonal effectiveness, cooperativeness and teamwork, skills at negotiating disagreements “Working with Emotional Intelligence” – Daniel Goleman

24 CharacteristicsYesterdayToday Business interaction Never Daily Business influence None High Why hired Technical expertise Soft skills and technical knowledge Higher Education IT degree or certification MBA and/or IT degree Roles IT support, administration or programming Business Analyst, Project Manager, Technical Architect, Strategic Account Manager, Security Specialist Evolution of the IT Worker Business-savvy IT workers have become critical to driving organizational growth and efficiency
