BCS Dismantles Its Ivory Tower
The British Computer Society (BCS) plans to reinvent itself after recognising that it has lost relevance to the IT profession.
The charity is transforming itself to represent a wider group of IT professionals in more countries. It will announce the changes in September.
Alan Pollard, president at the BCS, said the organisation wants to appeal to a wider section of IT industry. "A lot of the research we did identified that we are seen as a technical ivory tower."
The charity, which awards the Charted IT Professional qualification (CITP), will announce major changes to its structure and the qualifications it offers to reflect the needs of today's IT professionals.
