While technology can enhance competitive advantage, people are an enterprise’s only renewable asset. IT leaders must think strategically about how to manage their workforce to ensure they are positioned to deliver and ready to respond to emerging IT trends.
It is a mistake to assume IT talent acquisition begins with a job opening. In fact, effective talent attraction strategies are rooted in a comprehensive and realistic view of the local IT market.
