ECAR Workforce Study ‘11 CSG Hot Topics & Gossip January 2011 1
Current Status Previous studies were published in ‘04 and ‘08 Workforce study was already in process and committed to subscribers in spite of ECAR transition The ‘11 report is being resourced “differently” from ‘04 & ’08’s reports – From “a village” to Mark Sheehan & CER, with a little help from our friends Opportunity to think differently about the study – Same: provide an update on CIOs and CIO aspirants – Different: focus on interesting questions that emanate from noting ‘what has changed’ and ‘what has stayed the same”; shorter document that includes a list of all figures and tables for easy access 2
Preliminary “interesting questions”: ALL feedback welcome! How has the CIO’s (and IT’s) reporting line changed from study to study? Do we see evidence of a migration of reporting lines from the CAO to the CFO? Where are new CIOs coming from? Deputy CIO positions? Private industry? Are there significant changes over time? Is there a trend? What functions report to current CIOs? (This will have to come from qualitative interviews; we didn’t ask this question in the survey.) Do we have evidence that migration to the cloud has changed HE IT workforce dynamics over the past 2-3 years? What other changes emerge from the data and what are their implications for various categories of HE IT practitioner? How do baby-boomers see the future? Does it differ from views of younger respondents? How do current CIOs see the future? Does it differ from views of other respondents? What are the leading reasons for not pursuing a CIO position (non-aspirants) and how does the mix vary by current position? How do they vary by respondents’ age? Is the age at which a person first takes a CIO position changing? Is there evidence that respondents were concerned about age discrimination? Gender discrimination? I.e., is non-aspirant respondents’ gender significantly associated with any of the reasons (2010 question 5-14) for not pursuing a CIO position? Does salary vary significantly with respondent age and Carnegie class of respondent institution? 3
When will Chicken Little be right? More seriously: succession planning! We have been anticipating the retirement of ‘Boomer’ CIOs since 2004 – The rate of CIO retirements has been slower than anticipated Economic down-turn New perceptions of age & work – What are they thinking now? Sooner or later, the next generation will be needed to step into CIO roles, even if the cloud has redefined those roles – Aspirants are not aspiring to these jobs as much as they used to. Why not? – Ideally, the Workforce Study will provide questions whose answers will help us prepare for those Boomer retirements on our campuses and in the industry… sooner or later... Whenever they feel like it… 4
