Is IT a Profession?


January 21, 2010 at 7.00pm for a 7:30pm Start

This marks the first meeting of the Oxfordshire Branch Calendar for 2010. Please make a note in your diaries to attend as this looks to be a most thought provoking session.

IT often assumes the role of a servant but IT doesn’t just support business, it powers business. Has the IT profession come of age and is it seen as equivalent to the other professions represented in Boardrooms? Adam Thilthorpe, BCS Director for Professionalism, will be presenting the view that IT is most certainly a profession. An alternative view: that IT is a ‘trade’ and does not have the professional status of the law or accountancy, will also be presented as a challenge.
