Do you have an IT trade craft skills gap?

Do you have, or does your data infrastructure environment have a tradecraft skills gap?

Keep in mind that tradecraft is your fundamental skills along with experiences, knowing not just the tools, also the various techniques of what to use when, where, why and how.

A tradecraft gap exists when there is work to be done, people are available to fulfill those tasks, yet they lack the skills and experiences to do what is needed. For example, you have a position opening to support some function in your data infrastructure environment; many people are applying for that spot. Perhaps all of those applicants have tons of certificates, yet they lack the skills experience for the position. In other words, there is no shortage of people and their certificates, yet there is a gap between the workers and work to be done.

Are tradecraft gaps unique to data infrastructures in IT as well as non-IT environments?
