This summary contains input from twenty-four members regarding career frameworks and IT job families. We begin this summary with an overview of members' IT job family models, including jobs mapped, levels in job families, and how members deal with management and leadership roles. Next, we explore the changes that members have made or are planning to make to their IT job families and the frequency of such changes. The final section of this summary focuses on how agile methodologies are influencing IT job families and on compensation changes associated with new or modified IT job families.
