Benchmarks for IT Training Budgets 2013

November, 2013


IT organizations slashed training budgets during the recession, and they have yet to recover. At some point, best-in-class IT organizations will begin to adopt new technologies that require the recruitment and retention of workers with new skill sets. Training budgets will revive. This study provides IT organizations with benchmarks for setting optimal training budgets for their organizations. We provide benchmarks for spending on IT training per IT staff member and as a percentage of the IT budget. We also assess variation in training budgets by organization size and sector, and we look at the change in training expenditures over time. (11 pp., 5 figs.)
