If the typical online postings I see from people in
Gen Y are any indication, before they can move into
management they're going to need remedial English

Documentation still addresses the lowest common
denominator. What changes is what that represents.
Compared to 20 years ago, today it's usually a higher
level of skill with regard to the hands-on use of GUIs
but a lower level of general reading comprehension.

"...IT departments that are unnecessarily rigid and focused more on
consolidating their own power than empowering employees will find
themselves the target of budget cuts and proposals to decentralize IT or
just merge it with business operations. That could especially be the
case when Gen Y starts moving into management."
