Watch the recording of the CIPS IT Professionalism Week event “Building your Skills Inventory for a Digital Future” with CIPS’ CEO Greg Lane, which took place on October 31st 2022:
Do you know what skills you need in the future? Do you know what skills you currently have? As the Association of IT Professionals in Canada CIPS is trying to assist by allowing all members to assess their knowledge and experience and access training to help improve both. The demand for IT talent worldwide is increasing so the entire IT community needs to work together to advance individually and collectively. That journey starts with an understanding of where “we” are and a plan to get to where we need to be. The Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) is one of the tools CIPS is employing to help with the journey. This session will help attendees understand the challenge of Digital Transformation and plan for the future.
