Information Technology Managers Academy XIII

Bringing the Future of State IT into Focus

ITMA XIII logoITMA XIII selected this project as it directly related to state IT succession planning, in accordance with the California Performance Review and the State CIO's IT Strategic Plan. The class created a web-based electronic survey and conducted a statewide information technology skills and gap survey. The State CIO, on our behalf, requested State IT managers to complete the survey for their department. The ITMA XIII survey is a major empirical study that analyzes the current and future information technology skill sets and identifies those skills that are at risk due to retirement and attrition within the California State Government IT workforce. The ITMA class also presents a large amount of additional information and analyses in the final report, which is available here for download. ITMA XIII is the first class to organize an ITMA reunion of all prior classes, class managers and sponsors. The synergy achieved by the class contributed profoundly to the success of this effort.
