It’s more important than ever to recognize that digital skills are a critical success factor for digital transformation. A project of this magnitude involves a lot more than just implementing technology. It requires people with the skills to understand how to use these new technologies to create competitive advantage and build entirely new customer experiences and business models. To acquire this knowledge within your organization, you will need to roll out a suitable learning architecture and up-skill your workforce. This requires a supportive learning environment, a company culture of continuous learning, and a range of flexible learning options.
According to a study by Technical University Munich (TUM), 64% of companies surveyed said that they do not have the people with the skills necessary for digital transformation. Surprisingly, however, only 16% of companies have a skill development strategy in place to either up-skill current employees or acquire new employees with the needed skill profiles.
Have you assessed what up-skilling your workforce needs for their current roles and for learning new job roles? Do you have a skill development plan in place to identify and close skill gaps across your organization?
