In the next 4 years, over one-third of skills that are considered important in today's workforce will significantly change
World Economic Forum
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, 2016.
The list of projected top 10 skills from 2015 to 2020 shows significant movement. While skills such as problem solving and critical thinking remain in the top three, several skills in the top 10 today will disappear tomorrow. Organizations will require a broad base of both hard and soft skills to remain agile and competitive.
With employees now rewarded for their skills rather than their position, supporting learning systems must be equally agile but also broad and deep to support teams in hard skills, such as project management and project-based execution, and soft skills, such as personal productivity, communications, and team building.
Future-proof for the Modern Generation
Almost half of all millennials report they receive little or no formal training and believe their skills may be inadequate in three years. Fifty-nine percent report that they are not being given development opportunities. With 75 percent of the workforce made up of millennials by 2025, organizations will need to find better ways to offer personal and professional development opportunities, as well as the right modalities and resources to support that development.
Support Your Learners
High-performing organizations know their competitive advantage is directly tied to their ability to develop and deploy their talent effectively, reinforced by access to training programs that not only align to business objectives but support project execution.
Today execution happens in mission-based teams, with a rate of change that requires individuals to be nimble and prepared for a new responsibility at any time. A learning solution must have a broad base of content topics and modalities and be available when needed.
Your modern learners need:
- A broad set of hard and soft skill offerings on topics such as collaboration, professional development, team building, and project execution available when and where I need them
- Microlearning—a way to learn fast, with small doses of actionable learning for optimal retention
- Multi-dimensional content with practice and retrieval options to reinforce and retain learning
- Tools to embed learning and practice on the job
- Certification in key hard skill areas, such as project management and Six Sigma
With employees now rewarded for their skills rather than their position, supporting learning systems must be equally agile but also broad and deep to support teams in hard skills, such as project management and project based execution, and soft skills, such as personal productivity, communications, and team building.
