Co-Creation Hub with support from NITDA recently launched the Talent Gap Analysis project, a private-sector led effort to assess the technical talent gap in Nigeria in a bid to identify, evaluate, and prioritize current and anticipated gaps in the Nigerian IT workforce.
The first phase of the project, the talent demand analysis involves assessing the current and future workforce demands within the IT sector in Nigeria.
In order to properly the capture talent requirements in the IT industry in Nigeria, we needed to understand and categorise technology companies; and companies who depend heavily on the use of technology for their operations.
To kick-start the classification study, we organised a focus group session which involved people with over 10 years experience across multiple domains in the IT industry. The study identified the categories of technology businesses in Nigeria, the technical team structure, and finally the roles that function under each team.
Agreed categories of businesses for the purpose of this project:
To validate our findings, we engaged 4-6 companies in each category to verify & provide feedback which was used to modify this document.
The document below illustrates the classification of tech companies and their team structure in Nigeria
The pdf version of the classification document is available for download
