The present work is a follow-up of the papers presented at the Northern Arizona University, USA – “Accommodating soft skills in Software project Management ” and the one presented at Salford University, Manchester, UK – “ The ontogeny of memory of learning: Natural Intelligence versus Artificial Intelligence in Information Technology Education”.Several interrogations cropped up during and after the presentation of the second paper, particularly on the conclusions, if any, that could have been drawn on the effects of soft skills, intelligence and intelligences; and if the next step would be to further investigate the impact of these on Information Technology Education.
