Recently we run 2 surveys to identify what means IT Leaders, how to develop and what IT students think about this issue. To be more specific, we ask HR managers and IT Project managers to share with us what are the characteristics that an IT leader should have, how we can develop this kind of profile. Moreover, we asked them to evaluate based on this profile the recent graduated students that apply for different job opportunities. Then, based on those input, we created a second survey in which we asked from IT students to mention what skills and competencies an IT Leader should have. After that we asked them to evaluate their selves based on those characteristics and to prioritize which skills they want to develop.
Below you can find results of our surveys.
Please share with us your thoughts, do you agree with those results?
