A fledgling and still scattered knowledge stream on multi-disciplinary Smart city phenomena is developing. For the development of smart cities intellectual minds and a synthesis of quite diverse competences are required to shape cities to becoming smart with the overall objective to ever more improve the quality of life of its citizens in the most efficient and sustainable way. Both, the master minds and operators behind this development need to embark on an intensive change process, unlearn ingrained behavioral patterns and internalize an innovative competence set. This research is aiming to address the shortage of both, digital and transferrable skills that are needed for the various smart cities’ sectors differentiated by more strategic roles of Smart City Planner and Chief Digital Officer as well as the more operational IT Officer. This studyaddresses the gap of competences by providing preliminary quantitative and qualitative research findings of the still ongoing DevOps project.
