The 7 Habits of Highly Effective 21-st Century IT Professionals

Gone are those days when monolithic IT systems were developed and maintained by exclusive communities of IT professionals confined to technology-savvy regions of the world. The challenges of software engineering during the 21st century are quite different and multifold because of factors such as globalization and technology evolution.

In order to face these challenges, 21st-century IT professionals will need to transform successful practices into habits so that these practices become second nature.

Cutter IT Journal published my article “Force of Habit: 7 Essentials for 21-st Century IT Professionals” in the September 2011 issue. In this article, I have discussed the seven habits that are essential for today’s IT professionals.

The seven habits discussed in this article empower IT professionals to prepare, act, collaborate, optimize, and influence effectively in their career.
