Reskill, recruit, resource:
New strategies for CIOs to adapt and thrive in the age of the talent gap.
As we adjust to a new world of digital transformation, companies are having to adjust to unprecedented technological complexity which is affecting the way their entire organisation works. They are having to deliver new types of capability at pace. So it’s no wonder that a talent gap has opened up within the team most responsible for delivering those capabilities: IT.
Businesses and IT departments are having to plan for a future that seems less and less certain. Do you reskill, redeploy, recruit or source? And how do you do it in the most effective and efficient way?
In this report we have gathered expert viewpoints from those on the front lines of the IT talent gap, both within Cisco’s own IT organisation and other companies across the world. Together they paint a picture of what the future holds for skills, what works and what does not when it comes to building, retaining and applying talent to the IT function.
Every situation is different. Your strategy will be uniquely yours, and it will evolve from month to month. But this guide will show you some new tools and approaches you can draw on throughout your journey. It will also give you reassurance that CIOs are succeeding in building strong teams, even in today’s challenging times.
