This paper identifies and highlights the main issues and challenges that will shape the human resource factor in the future development of the Information Society Technology (IST). It is done by addressing the future of human resources for IST from three different angles, namely, the future composition of IST workforce, the future geography of Human Resources for IST (HRIST) supply and demand and the future orientation of IST markets. The paper argues that the pending demographic change, the internationalisation of education, labour and markets and the continuous shift from an industrial economy to an information knowledge-based economy will transform the dynamics of workforce supply and demand as we know it today. Foresighting the future of IST workforce requires identifying and understanding these new dynamics.
