In today’s increasingly complex economic environment, the developments of enterprises rely more and more on the strength of senior management team. Especially for the IT companies, who rely on the high-tech development. This article analyzes the influence of the heterogeneity in TMT’s education background, age, and working years on technological innovation, depending on the data collected from IT industry from six central provinces. The empirical research shows that the heterogeneity of term and degree will have positive effect on the enterprise technological innovation, while the heterogeneity of age has no significant influence on technological innovation. The IT enterprises from six provinces should absorb the talents who have different education background, accept the new members and make full use of their intelligence to improve the enterprises technological innovation ability and promote competitiveness.
