The IS Leadership and the IT Profession track is aimed at fostering a forum for IS scholars engaging in a range of issues surrounding the practice of IT related research including IS leadership, the IT workforce, career development/training and issues surrounding the IT profession. Specific objectives of the track are to allow members to share their research, develop the discourse between academia and practice, engage in exchange of perspectives, and encourage future collaborations. The track is sponsored by the AIS Special Interest Group on IS Leadership (SIGLEAD) in collaboration with the Society for Information Management (SIM). This track has been led by SIGLEAD and hosted at AMCIS since 2003. The proposed track title is an evolution of the previous Human Capital in Information Systems title as the new title was determined to be more reflective of the SIGLEAD sponsorship, more reflective of growing coordination with SIM and more inclusive of the research interests of both groups.
