Business Development

Preparing for opportunities, invest in your skills today!

Look at any number of reports and you’ll see a trend:

  • According to the IBM Institute for Business Value September 2018 report, AI is moving beyond pilots and proofs of concept to deep and scaled implementations. 63% respondents see skills as the top barrier to their success in 2018.
  • In a December 2016 study, IBV reported that 60% of executives struggle to keep workforce skills current and relevant in the face of rapid technological advancement.

These studies and others reveal that as businesses transform and new technologies rapidly emerge, there are skills gaps and shortages. Or as some of us like to think, skill-building opportunities.

There are many ways to approach each one. We can define skills solutions organizationally and individually. We can develop the overall long-term education plan and focus on creating the individual learning journey, based on an immediate project requirement. Consultations, learning journeys and hands-on elearning modules are all part of the mix.

So where do you begin?
