IT Asset Managers Need Strong Communication, Admin Skills: Gartner

eWeek: A new report from Gartner says that the most important skill set for IT asset managers (ITAMs) is communication skills. “Good communicators are often good negotiators, and effective communication skills will ensure that ITAM can build the important relationships with the finance, legal, procurement and technical specialists (such as enterprise architects) required for an effective ITAM team,” said Gartner’s Victoria Barber.

The report said that technical skills were the second most critical for ITAMs. The rest of the top six included administrative, financial, negotiation and legal skills, in that order.
