Recruit the right people: 3

For too long, IT has allowed anybody to have a go. Professional certification is coming to IT.

It is high time we had some substantial certification in the IT industry. And I don't mean MCSE.

The foundation that provides is small compared to what an engineer, surveyor or pilot have, let alone a doctor, dentist or vet. None of whom get paid what some IT consultants are raking in right now.

Look for two trends to help verify people:
1) Professional bodies are increasing their standards of certification or registration of practitioners. Look for and expect the sdaem levels as surveyors and engineers: a tertiary qualification, years of experience, ongoing professional development, integrity and peer recognition.
2) those tertiary qualifications: look for more specialised courses and more relevance to business. "Computer science" often teaches no more than programming and dabbling with PCs.
