ABSTRACT
This article introduces four articles on the general theme of IT professionalism that make up this special issue. The authors also critique the assertion by J. Steib that "the primary goal of professionalism is competent creation." The authors conclude that although competent creation is an important part of IT professionalism, it isn't primary. Instead, the public good is to be primary for IT professionals.
INDEX TERMS
IT professionalism, competent creation, codes of ethics, public good, IT professional
