One of the crucial factors in making an information system successful is people. This is especially true in Hong Kong as it is a service-oriented economy which does not produce much computer hardware or software. This makes IT manpower in Hong Kong an important issue, exacerbated by a chronic shortage of IT staff. Since 1989, the problem of retaining, recruiting and training IT personnel has been consistently ranked as the most critical issue in IT management (Burn, et al., 1993).
