An organization's workforce is its greatest asset. This is not a cliche but a well-established fact. Companies that invest in people deliver higher quality service to clients, are more profitable and are better at tackling long term challenges.
The skills landscape is constantly shifting. New technologies emerge at a faster rate than we’ve ever experienced. Businesses models utilizing these technologies shift just as fast. If a company isn’t the first to capitalize on these shifts, their competitors will.
The future of skilling will be all about creating professionals who not only have core technical skills, but also have skills that make them well-rounded professionals. This includes skills in industry domain, architecture, business knowledge, and soft skills (critical thinking, creativity, flexibility, problem-solving and emotional intelligence). We have seen skill structures move from I-shaped (one core skill specialization) to T-shaped to what is now defined as a comb or m-shaped skill structure (multiple skills).
While the type of skills required is changing, what is also changing is the pedagogy:
Beyond building and guiding a career path for their employees through these trainings, companies are finding efficient ways to utilize these skills in the 'right' projects to maximize revenue and profits through deployable and ready workforce.
Clients are looking at ways to reduce overhead from having to extensively interview and evaluate candidates from their supplier.
