This paper explores the perception of the Information Technology (IT) competence of professional managers, defined as the set of IT allied explicit and implicit knowledge that a business manager owns that permits him or her to reveal IT leadership in his or her area of business. A manager's knowledge of technologies, applications, systems development, and management of IT form his or her explicit IT knowledge. This field further extends to include knowing who knows what, which aids the manager to force the knowledge of others. Implicit IT knowledge is imagined as a combination of experience and reasoning.
