Re: IT Skills Shortage
IT will always need some specialists, but no CIO can build an effective team using a constantly rotating cast of specialists. The idea of hiring generalists, with diverse project experience, who can morph and grow with the team must become a more popular part of IT culture, in my opinion.

Re: IT Skills Shortage
A refreshing post from rradina. Thank you for weighing in. That his/her employer is a private company says something. Maybe it's because Dell and BMC have recently gone private, but I'm hearing a lot more these days about the virtues of working for a private company with a longer-term outlook.

IT Skills Shortage
20% of the CIOs said skills shortage keeps them up at night? That is sure to spur some debate among IT pros who are job hunting. Is there really a skills shortage?

Well, we know data science pros are in demand, certainly. But some companies still are crying shortage -- but, IT job hunters say, the hiring managers won't open their minds to a wide pool of candidates. Have the requirements lists gotten out of hand?

Meeting with CEO/CFO
Half of the CIOs said they meet with the CEO or CFO weekly, and that those interactions were "very positive" or "highly positive." Any CIOs want to weigh in here? Does the same ring true in your organization?
