Perception gaps between IS academics and IS practitioners: An exploratory study
Computer Information Systems
It has long been recognized that there are significant perception gaps between information systems (IS) academics and IS practitioners with regards to the required IS knowledge/skills to perform their professional jobs successfully. Unfortunately, there is no consensus about which knowledge/skills are more important in the IS profession. With the rapidly changing IS technology and IS industry, a study was urgently needed to find and understand the gaps between these two groups. A study to measure the gap is reported.
