T Shaped People

The technology workers most in demand in the future, according to James E. Spohrer, a researcher and director of university programs for I.B.M., will be "T-shaped people." Such people, Mr. Spohrer explains, possess a deep knowledge in one technical discipline topped off by a wide portfolio of skills, from project management to industry expertise, that makes them more valuable to employers.
