    The one constant in IT is change, and the best employees embrace it, continuously looking for ways to expand their skill set and knowledge and make more contributions to company success. To keep the best and brightest on board, companies should set out a clear career path and provide numerous development opportunities.

Late last year, InformationWeek published an article on the IT talent shortage. To get a sense of the scale of the problem, the magazine surveyed the information technology community, asking if IT professionals see a talent shortage in one or more critical business areas.

More than 73 percent of respondents at companies with fewer than 1,000 employees indicated that they've had trouble finding the right talent. The problem is even more acute at larger companies: 88 percent reported that they've experienced an IT talent shortage.
