ABSTRACT
This article presents an analysis of the responsibilities of the information technology (IT) training companies in the development of this sector. It has been recognized that with great power comes great responsibility. The IT industry's track record for project management, so many large IT projects cost multiples of the original estimates and fall over like dead ducks as soon as the second user logs in. IT departments usually manage organizations' most important initiatives, from electronic-commerce web sites to office moves. For electronic-commerce web sites, for example, technology is there only to support a sales or marketing drive, so project responsibility should not lie with someone who doesn't have those skills.
