Buy

As IT staff shortages are being experienced worldwide, with a huge gap between the number of positions available for IS/IT workers and the number of available qualified workers to fill them. The major factors that have contributed to the IS/IT crisis include lack of understanding of the career orientations of IS personnel; high IS staff turnover; lack of diversity in the IS profession; the relative youth of the IS profession; and lack of coherent strategies for recruitment, development and retention of IS personnel. This book discusses some of the major factors that have contributed to the IS staff shortage and presents strategies for containing the crisis.

Strategies for Managing IT Personnel explores the challenges faced by organizations as they develop strategies for recruiting, training, retraining and retaining IT professionals.

Strategies for Managing IT Personnel is valuable to all managers, researchers, teachers and students who want to learn about issues related to the IS professional career and how strategies for recruiting, training, and retraining and retaining the best and the brightest IT talent can be designed, implemented and monitored.
