Organisations are in a continued state of transformation. Strategies are changing, roles are changing , and required capabilities are changing. This means that almost all roles will look different in the future compared with how they look today. In effect, many roles which will be important in the future do not even exist today. Traditional approaches to learning and talent management are based on the assumption that we can identify required “competencies”, and hence use development experiences and training to build the required competencies. However, this concept is static and we end up developing people to do “today’s” work more effectively, rather than preparing them to do tomorrow’s work. The presentation will use examples from Maersk Line, the world´s largest container shipping company, on their efforts to orient their learning and talent programs towards this new reality.
