IT Competencies for Federal IT Managers
Federal information technology (IT) managers of the future will need to have a more diverse set of skills than their predecessors. They will need to be effective relationship managers, who can work well with contractors and other cooperators who provide an increasing variety of services to their agency. From a technology standpoint, they will need to be nimble generalists who stay familiar with the latest developments in technology. Finally, they will need to be effective communicators with agency programmatic executives. By sharing a common programmatic understanding with those executives, they can advise how new technology development can further advance the agency mission.
