“Surviving the IT talent crisis has become a critical component in a company’s ability to compete and succeed in the digital economy.” Harvard Business Review Analytic Services
According to a November 2016 report published by market research company MarketsandMarkets, the global digital transformation market size is estimated to grow from USD 148.04 billion in 2015 to USD 392.15 billion by 2021. http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/PressReleases/digital-transformation.asp
Against this background, the need for companies to hire in the Digital Talent necessary to effect this transformation is creating a high demand for experienced Digital Tech professionals across a variety of roles. To quote a recent Harvard Analytics report Harvard Business Review Analytic Services “Surviving the IT talent crisis has become a critical component in a company’s ability to compete and succeed in the digital economy.”
And while there may not be a “quick fix” for this complex challenge, there are some practical steps that employers can take to improve their ability to hire the digital talent they need when they need. Here I’m sharing just 3 of them.
And remember – successful Digital Transformation is led from the top down. Begin with hiring in the right Talent at C-Suite and Director level – either on a permanent or interim basis – to help guide your organisation’s digital transformation success.
