Take the April 2011 State of the IT Union Survey

April 19, 2011

I invite you to fill out my “April 2011 State of the IT Union" Survey (the URL is http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/StateOfITUnion). The goal of this ongoing survey series is to find out what IT professionals are actually doing in practice. The survey should take you about 5-7 minutes to complete, and your privacy will be completely protected.

At the end of the survey you will be given the chance to be entered into a drawing for one of 10 copies of Leadership, Teamwork, and Trust: Building a Competitive Software Capability by Watts Humphrey and James Over, published by Pearson/Addison-Wesley Professional in December 2010.

I will summarize the results of this survey in a forthcoming newsletter. Furthermore, this is an open survey, so the source data (without identifying information to protect your privacy), a summary slide deck, and the original source questions will be posted at www.ambysoft.com/surveys/ so that others may analyze the data for their own purposes. University students and professors have used data from previous surveys for their research papers, and hopefully the same will be true of the data from this survey. The results from several other surveys are already posted there, so please feel free to take advantage of this resource.
