The Digital Transformation portfolio’s video-based courses are designed to help HR and L&D leaders prepare their workforces for the digital economy. The courses address seven major competency areas: Agility for Digital Transformation, Data Science, Digital Competencies, Digital Experiences, Digital Marketing & Communications, Essentials of Digital Transformation, and Virtual Work. “Skillsoft is thrilled to be first to market with a comprehensive solution for training on fundamental digital transformation concepts, methodologies and technologies, in a scalable and affordable way,” said Heide Abelli, Senior Vice President of Content Product Management, Skillsoft. “The breadth and depth of our Digital Transformation courses provide a solid foundation for individuals, managers and leaders to advance their careers while driving productivity, increasing efficiency and spurring innovation for their organizations.” North Highland, a global management consulting firm, has been a longstanding Skillsoft customer, using the company’s Business Skills, Compliance, and IT Certification content to enhance its employees’ expertise. North Highland is now expanding its engagement to include Skillsoft’s full portfolio of Digital Transformation learning content. “Skillsoft is a valued partner to North Highland and has proven effective for developing skills across our global footprint,” said Michelle Resnick, Global Director of Talent Development for North Highland. “Digital fluency and being effective in a digital environment is critical both within North Highland and for the clients we serve.

Innovative content treatments such as high-motion iconography and an eye-catching, modern look and feel further enhance the learner experience. The video-based courses are supplemented with books, audio books, articles and other content assets for learning extension. Organizations can also take advantage of Skillsoft’s Digital Transformation Readiness Program, a service for curating content from a wide variety of portfolios to create a customized, holistic digital transformation learning solution. According to Predictions for 2018: Embracing Radical Transparency published by Bersin, Deloitte Consulting, LLP, “accelerating digital transformation will force new leadership models for organizations.” Transformation “demands that companies develop digital fluency – teaching people at all levels about digital terminology, technology, and business models.” This “new world of work demands more than improving the digital skills of midlevel managers. HR must now turn its attention to CEOs and other top-level executives.” (Bersin by Deloitte is the indispensable digital destination for the HR Professional to build capability, community and credibility, stay informed, and lead on workforce issues.)
