Business Technology Management (BTM) – the fastest growing ICT sector

The Business Technology Management (BTM) sector is the fastest growing segment of ICT occupational growth, and the one that is experiencing the worst skills shortages in every region of Canada. As part of a national initiative aimed at increasing Canada’s competitiveness in the global economy, the Government of Canada has provided funding to the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) Talent division to assist with the expansion of its successful BTM initiative. ITAC is looking for your help to make this expansion a success. The meeting will create an opportunity for active engagement of the ICT community in the BTM project. The meeting will focus specifically on the BTM National Occupational Standard (NOS) and the Learning Outcomes and Competency Standards for post-secondary programs.

As someone directly involved in the day-to-day business of running the ICT operations in your organization, you are invited to join ITAC and CIPS BC for an exclusive event held on March 19.

Why should you consider participating?

By attending, you will help your organization by:

• identifying your critical talent needs and helping to directly shape skills and training opportunities;

• gaining input for a more informed and current recruitment and HR planning strategy ;

• developing an understanding of new career paths for employees to increase productivity and promote employee retention.

Background reading on the project will be provided prior to the meeting. We ask you to come prepared to provide input based on your day-to-day experiences “in the trenches” of ICT in business and to critique data collected to date.

These sessions are being held across Canada, in cooperation with CIPS, to ensure the national definition of the BTM occupations reflects today’s real work environment.
