The Five Essential Skills You Need to Compete in the New Era of IT Shared by JamesRichard

The Five Essential Skills You Need to Compete in the New Era of IT
Overview: The technical skills that have taken you to this point in your career may well be your undoing. We are entering a new era for IT organizations. One that is less defined by technical capabilities and more defined by business acumen. The skills that IT professionals have relied upon will no longer be sufficient. Even more challenging, they will begin to work against you as you find yourself being asked to operate at a very different level. Based on his book, The Quantum Age of IT: Why Everything You Know About IT is About to Change, Charles Araujo will describe the changing landscape for IT organizations and the impact those changes will have on the skills required of IT professionals. He will describe the shifting operating paradigm of the IT organization and explain the five new skills that every IT professional must develop in order to compete and thrive in this new era. 

We are entering a turbulent time for IT professionals. But it is also a time of great opportunity for those who develop the five essential skills that will be in great demand. With a fun, but direct approach, Charles Araujo will help you understand the changing landscape and through some unique interactive elements, prepare you to seize the opportunities it will present.
