Is Your Learning Ecosystem Effective?


Published on

60-year careers, the decreasing half life of skills, and digital disruption have many organizations rethinking, and maybe even struggling with how they develop their employees.

“Fifty-six percent of current workforce skill sets do not match the changes in their company’s strategy, goals, markets, or business models.” — ATD, Bridging the Skills Gap, 2015

Finding success in this turbulent time takes new strategies, skillsets and modernized tools, which makes it an important, yet perfect time for corporate learning leadership to take stock of their learning investments.

Creating the right ecosystem will be the difference between those who make it through the age of disruption and those who don’t.
