The article is devoted to the actual problem of the substantiation of the laws and conditions of the relationship between the personal development and human potential of IT specialists and the results of their activities in the organization. The purpose of the article is the analysis and prediction of the performance of IT specialists by the grading system using regression analysis, where the predictors are the individual potentials of IT specialists. This problem is considered on the example of IT-professionals (n = 182) from four countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The author’s grading system was used to determine the level of professional efficiency during the trial period. The models for forecasting the professional performance of IT professionals were created, confirmed by various methods of regression analysis. It is determined that such aspects of personal development and human potential as social intelligence, abstract thinking, decisiveness, dominance, intrinsic motivation, communication, resistance to emotional stress, openness, and susceptibility to any kind of knowledge are predictors of effective performance in the IT industry.
