This IDC study provides a blueprint for establishing and maintaining a continuous learning environment in a government IT organization. It provides guidance that will enable IT organizations to cultivate a learning culture that positions them to strategically develop their own IT talent with the right technical and leadership competencies (i.e., grow strategy) instead of depending on successfully acquiring technical talent (i.e., buy strategy).
"As government agencies rethink workforce strategies in a post-COVID-19 world, their IT organizations have the opportunity to rebrand themselves and implement strategic human capital programs that will attract and retain highly skilled employees," according to Thom Rubel, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "A comprehensive continuous learning environment is a key component of this approach."
