MIS is igniting fresh debates on the perennial issue of IT skills shortage in Australia.
It is clear, supply side problems are caused by a combination of myriad factors (I previously took part in a similar discussion here) and rightly so, there is no ‘one solution’ to the problem . Any serious attempt at addressing IT skills shortage, at the very least, will require a collaborative approach by various stakeholders – employers, the business community, professional associations, industry bodies, talent service providers, education & training houses and public policy makers.
The National ICT Career Week is a collaborative attempt at addressing one aspect of the problem. It is a long overdue initiative.
