Information and communications technology (ICT) has been changing rapidly over a long period, and this rate of change is likely to continue or increase (Benamati & Lederer, 2001a; Fordham, 2001). This rapid rate of change has produced many opportunities for organizations but has also brought with it many challenges (Benamati & Lederer, 2001b; Lederer & Mendelow, 1990). Among these challenges is the struggle for organizations to obtain personnel with the appropriate knowledge and skills in order to meet their ICT needs (Byrd & Turner, 2001; Doke, 1999). This is mirrored by the continual requirement for information technology (IT) professionals to keep up-to-date with the skills required by organizations (Benamati & Lederer, 2001a; Klobas & McGill, 1993).
