This paper’s objective is to create a better understanding of the need for developing an IT environment in Organizational & End-user Information Systems’ (OEIS) programs of study wherein hard skills are paired with soft skills, where qualitative research has as much intrinsic value as quantitative research, and where creative thinking and critical thinking is encouraged. To this end, the coauthors have developed the Management, Technology, and Communication (MTC) Model for Training Knowledge Workers in a Digital Economy. This model complements and reinforces the essential objectives and competencies housed in the Organizational Systems Research Association’s newly designed 2004 OEIS Model Curriculum.
