If we are to achieve a more professional approach to the exploitation of IT, we will need an IT profession which:
Is defined in terms of its ability to play a full part in all stages of IT exploitation
Is seen as – and sees itself as – an integral part of the business
Has appropriate non-technical skills, including management, business and leadership skills, as core competences
Is about both Information and Technology
Lays greater emphasis on the accreditation of current capability and competence
Demands greater personal responsibility on the part the practitioner
Is attractive to a wider group of entrants than at present – including
those groups alienated by the current image of the profession
