Why Read This Report

The skills of the software development team are crucial for project success and can enable or doom the adoption of any new architecture or technology. Maritz understood the value and importance of building the right skills within its development organization as it transitioned to .NET. The company aligned its skills road map with its technical architecture and exploited a new approach to learning provided by InnerWorkings. This approach combined eLearning, community, and competition within the developers' integrated development environment (IDE), making education easy and fun while moving toward clear organizational goals. Application development professionals can learn from this innovative approach when facing a similar need to build new skills within their organization.
