The war is on for Business Technology Management (BTM) talent in Canada.
Canadian employers can’t find enough talent with the combined business and technology knowledge as well as functional skills in project management, communications, collaboration and leadership. Some 200,000 are already employed in BTM jobs – twice as many as 10 years ago – and demand continues to grow. Employers will need to fill more than 50,000 BTM-related jobs in the next few years.
Demand is growing because tech-related jobs play increasingly important roles in every organization. Employees with a combination of business and technology skills aren’t only needed by the tech industry, but across all sectors such as natural resources, manufacturing, health care, government and retail.
