Abstract

Nowadays, companies dealing with software development are often facing problems related to cadre as a consequence of rapid technology changes and varying project requirements. Knowledge of the companies’ software engineers is quickly becoming outdated and it is virtually impossible for a single developer to master all the latest technologies and approaches in his field of expertise. Consequently older technologies often remain in use. Yet another difficulty is that cadre requirements of software development companies change from project to project. It is not rare that when a new project is commenced additional workforce is required, but after the project is finished these additional employees are not needed anymore.
