Skill transformation alone won’t help the company

Seven dimensions are shown above

Need a strategy, why required, how change is being done

Change story needs to be communicated

“Chief Digital Officer” to guide overall change

Culture of learning and skill development “Learning matters” – needs to be communicated by all levels.  “Lead by example” – is there enough budget for training?

Skills transformation program that identifies skill gaps; it is an ongoing process

Learning experience to accommodate different learning preferences
