Our institution is taking a hard look at the investment being made in our overall IT FTE professional development effort.  I am particularly interested in information that might provide a broad range of institution’s information on current resource allocation for professional development, specifically for centralized IT personnel (possibly as a % of total IT budget, institutional budget, etc.).  Ultimately our goal is to determine an appropriate budget range for both recurring and one-time professional development efforts. 


How are other institutions determining the ‘right amount’ for professional development spending?  I am able to find plenty of information on the ongoing efforts of higher ed IT organizations but nothing offering any specific figures or methodologies for how existing programs are developed.  Any clues or direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!
