1. Read and Review Communications of the ACM, June 2010 (Allow 45 minutes)
- What are the skills most critical to recruitment and retention of IT employees?
- To what extent do they match YOUR skill-set?
- Who coined the phrase requisite variety? When?
N.B. As always, please try to use the questions above simply to guide your reading: you do not need to specifically answer them in your writing because first, you are again asked to
Search for another article that explores employment forecasts and trends or recruitment or other HR issues in IT. Once you have identified an article that relates to one or more aspects of our topic – the skills and competence associated with digital transformation – consider its authority and relevance. Does it offer strong empirical evidence for the arguments or predictions it puts forward? Does it reinforce – or perhaps contradict – what you have read before? Considering these qualities will help you find a potent source! The USF Library is by far the best resource for this phase of your work. Carefully read, analyze and summarize the article you chose and then write a brief review (between 300-600 words) that articulates what you consider to be the key issue(s), and specifically how it (or they) relate to those set out in the lead articles AND how they affect the ‘digital transformation’ of individuals and organizations (Allow 2 hours).
Your review will attract a higher grade the more directly it relates to the issues and themes raised in the lead articles and the extent to which it articulates agreements or disagreements. Using evidence (data) to challenge a view expressed is particularly welcomed.
Please when you quote from the essays use the full quotation including page number and paragraph number.
EVERY direct quotation MUST include a full citation INCLUDING the page or paragraph number. MLA or APA styles are the best suited to our work in the course. This link provides an overview https://guides.lib.usf.edu/c.php?g=451607&p=6842246
