An organization's people are its biggest competitive advantage - however, programs designed to increase employee engagement and productivity often don't produce the desired results. Research shows this is typically due to lack of visibility into employees' capabilities and performance or HR having to spend too much time gathering and analyzing information across multiple systems instead of taking action that could have a material impact on the business.

Charles Jennings, Duntroon Associates

Organizations that embrace and practice agility are proven to be more effective in dealing with change. Key to fostering agility is continuous learning and development. Learning is not an event-based occurrence where one-time training can satisfy skill gaps; learning opportunities need to be accessible, targeted, and continuous. With a strong learning culture that aligns with business objectives, companies are better able to embrace an agile mindset, and with increased agility, performance will improve and the overall business impact will increase.
