Developing your 21st century workforce

Lou Markstrom | Aug. 26, 2015
The current transformation taking place in the IT industry is shaking the foundations of the profession for the better. IT departments are evolving from back offices to client-facing organisations that are critical to the future of the business.

Create career development plans

Support your people in the development of their career goals. By helping them to articulate their goals and then providing them with the tools, resources, and guidance to proceed toward the attainment of that vision, you will ensure their career trajectory aligns with the organisation’s transformation goals.

Referring back to their assessments in this step will allow you to not only access their current skills gap in their current role, but also to identify the skills that need to be developed so that they can move into and succeed in future career roles.

Identify-organisation-wide skills gaps

From assessing your people and compiling the data, you will have an understanding of where your organisation sits in relations to the 12 core skills. You will see overall strengths, areas to improve and overall training needs.

With the limited time and resources organisations are facing today, this will allow you to take a targeted and focused approach to addressing the most critical overall organisational needs. This analysis will allow you to see what was previously invisible and allow you the greatest return on investment when addressed.

The results from assessing, understanding and addressing skills gaps for individuals, leaders and organisation-wide can be ground-breaking for IT organisations
