I don’t think we can. First, if the software is not being used, why is that? Perhaps the problem it was intended to solve has disappeared, or changed so much that the software no longer addresses it well enough. Perhaps the customer was wrong when he asked for features x, y, and z, and found out too late for me to change what I was making. Perhaps the software works, but is too hard or unpleasant to use, and people shy away from it. Whatever the reason, software that sits on the shelf, unused, has no value (see “Appendix C, The Principle of the Useful Illusion,” for my thoughts on this).

When society needs more of them, we know what process to take individuals through to increase their numbers, and we know how to tell young people to prepare for a given professional career. So where does software development fit? Software development is certainly complex and requires extensive training and experience to do it well. Not everyone can do it, not because it is fundamentally beyond some people, but because not everyone would want to do it, or would keep doing it for very long. It requires a certain temperament, a technical bent, and a fundamental love of problem-solving that does not exist in everyone.
