Too many organizations are requiring certifications in their hiring and vendor selection processes without having any mechanisms in place to ensure those credentials are properly leveraged. This CIO Corner briefly outlines specific problem areas through examples and recommends steps for a "get well" program for your team. These include focus areas such as recruiting, RFPs, vendor selection processes, and project monitoring. CIOs, hiring managers, and anyone working on a project in which vendors will be selected should review this article for improved performance.
