New world. New skills.
Most managers agree that the digital age will bring benefits — but they fear that neither they nor their people are ready. They are right to be worried. One in three jobs is likely to be severely disrupted or to disappear in the next decade because of technological change.
In the face of these rising challenges, the only option is upskilling, giving people the opportunity to gain the knowledge, tools, and abilities they need to use and understand advanced and ever-changing technologies in the workplace and their daily lives. Some of this learning takes place in classrooms, but most of it is carried out through self-paced multimedia and simulation game modules, or through projects in which teams learn by building and sharing new tools.
