Skilling through disruption: A new day, new way

Maintaining a workforce with the right skills at the right time and right place may be an organization’s most important asset in harnessing disruption for future growth and success. New intelligence technologies, like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, create opportunities for innovation and disruption.


of execs surveyed by Accenture expect that in the next three years more than 60 percent of their workforce will move into new roles, requiring substantial reskilling due to the impact of technology.

Because multiple generations nudge elbows in the workforce, skilling programs must address a complex set of expectations. For today’s leading global organizations, competing at the pace and scale of digital disruption amid a continuous stream of new and formidable market players hinges on the effective skilling of their people.

So, just as business leaders appreciate the importance of delivering more personalized customer experiences, they must likewise do the same for their employees to drive effective engagement. Learning today needs to be curated and delivered in a more thoughtfully organized and consumable way that is: context-sensitive and adaptive, fully mobile accessible and social-ready.
