Addressing the IT Skills Shortage by Developing Your Own Technical Expertise

Developing and maintaining your organization’s technical skills is paramount to the success of your business, and to all individuals who are part of your IT Team.

A recent statement from a Bloomberg article on the state of the IT  talent shortage: 

Nearly 2-in-3 consulting firms say they’re short-staffed, and 1-in-5 are turning down work as a result, according to a survey from Source Global Research, which provides research and analysis for the professional services industry. More than half of respondents said retention has become a bigger problem in 2021 compared with the end of last year, while about half said recruiting has also become more difficult. The biggest reason why clients abandon a project is that firms don’t have the right capabilities.
