This IDC study documents the importance of training to IT team success. CIOs and IT make every effort to ensure each project succeeds and produces quantifiable benefits. During difficult economic periods when pressure increases to produce more with less, it is most important that IT managers don't underestimate the impact the skill of their project team has on project success. IDC research shows a tight link between training, team skill, and project success. This document illustrates that link and provides examples of how trained project teams are better than undertrained teams at leveraging the built-in features and functions of a technology or tool.
"IT managers often seek to reduce risk of project failure, decrease implementation costs, and increase project effectiveness. Focusing on the skill of the project team can be an effective way to help achieve these goals," Cushing Anderson, program vice president, IT Education and Certification research.
