Managing IT Skills Portoflios: Planning, Acquisition and Performance Evaluation provides the basic vocabulary and managerial framework for managing strategically the IT workforce at the firm level. It also informs mangers what tools and services are available to assess the skill levels of their IT workforce and job candidates. Finally, it gives different perspectives on managing IT skills - how individuals, HR managers, educators, and governments approach IT skills management.
