In the last year, many organizations have been engaged in a heated competition for a limited supply of technology talent. Yet with technical skills becoming outdated every few years, hiring for current needs is not a winning long-term strategy. Rather than competing in scarcity, savvy leaders consider an abundance frame, where in technology talent can be curated, created, and cultivated. Companies should be prepared to eschew IT or thodoxies and prize flexibility as the best ability. By building a skills-based organization, tapping into creative sources for finding talent, and providing a compelling talent experience, companies can meet their talent goals. In the longer term, organizations should plan to brush up on their humanities, as AI technology advances enough to carry out many of the lower order tasks that IT teams are burdened with today.
